well i don't know about how is the code in py but
in c++ we need to setlocale before creating the cache
map, and i need to call a different method that seems
to get the localized string.

hmm no, i don't know how to create that, i'll try to find

i know it's not completely up to the backend but
i have some ideas that would be easy for me to do/test
if the backend was in c++, i'll take a look at your
dbus daemon but i don't know apt enough for that, and
that's another reason i started to write one..
it's going fast with the search stuff, i have searchName
fully working, + resolving the virtual packages which
i find very usefull, the next step will be sorting
the packages (right now without sorting the time is
half of py bkend). getDetails is complete too + localized
(apart from the license). getPackages, getGroups and filters
are working too. this week i plan to sort the output
and finish getRequired getDepends. All methods are now

I haven't investigated this problem much, but it seems that SetLocale is
not called correctly by the dbus-backend.

Do you already have got a public branch? You could upload your changes
to a new branch in the repository before merging into master.

Do you refer to the debconf/configuration conflict handling? These are
not problems which can be solved in the backend, but require changes in
PackageKit's design for a proper integration. I get the feeling that
apt doesn't fit very well in the PackageKit framework and we have to
add a lot of workarounds.
So by reusing some design aspects and code of PackageKit I wrote a basic DBus
controlled apt daemon this weekend. But I am not sure where to go.
