Ubuntu Software Store: What it does, and how you can help

So does this mean no packagekit? I knew plans for it in karmic had been
dropped but this appcenter will replace Add/Remove instead? Would it be
possible and/or worth it to base it on packagekit?

Hi everyone

At the Ubuntu Developer Summit in May, we discussed AppCenter -- the
codename for a new interface for finding, installing, and removing
software in Ubuntu.

Now, AppCenter has a brand name: the Ubuntu Software Store.
And it has a package in Ubuntu Karmic: software-store.

The objective for Ubuntu 9.10 is for the Store to replace Add/Remove
Applications. But there is plenty of work left to do to reach that goal.
We're looking for help from artists, copy-editors, GTK/Clutter hackers,
interface designers, librarians (!), packagers, Python programmers, and
testers. We welcome useful contributions from anyone, regardless of age,
gender, or experience.

For details of how you can help, see the specification:
