[ubuntu-mono] [Bug 546936] Re: Monodevelop missing from Ubuntu Software Center's "Mono/CLI" subsection

There are a couple problems with changing the section:

* MonoDevelop can be used to develop non-Mono/CLI apps, e.g. C, C++, Python, Vala, Java
* cli-mono isn't really for apps anyway - I wouldn't put Pinta or GNOME Do there either

Really, the software center should be using debtags to handle grouping,
since it's pretty rare for compartmentalization like this to be correct
for all cases - an app with multiple shoes to fill should appear in
every possible section which fits the bill, not a single section.

Monodevelop missing from Ubuntu Software Center's "Mono/CLI" subsection
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu
CLI/Mono Uploaders, which is subscribed to monodevelop in ubuntu.

Status in “monodevelop” package in Ubuntu: New

Bug description:
Binary package hint: monodevelop

1. In Ubuntu Software Center, navigate to "Get Software" > "Developer Tools" > "Mono/CLI".
2. Try to find Monodevelop.

What happens: You can't.
What should happen: You can.

This is because the monodevelop package has "Section: universe/devel". It should have "Section: universe/cli-mono".

Ubuntu Software Center could work around this temporarily by special-casing monodevelop in its categorization scheme.
