Hi Matthias,

Thanks for your reply :)

QJade is very young, it is Qt5 frontend with PackageKit-Qt migrated to 
Qt5.2.x it use Qt5.2.x C++ && QML.

I do not like Ubuntu, so I google with 'Bodega', is it UbuntuKylin`s AppStore cheap copy the UI of 
appbodega... SHAME!!!

I wanna choose Drupal a PHP CMS, and I am able to 
develop AppStore module for it to provide JSON APIs for QJade, Apper and 
other AppStores.
