In this last UDS we discussed about these stuff
and what we are going to do is to support App-Install
and change KPackageKit to be a little like sw-center,
right now I'm trying to fix some bugs in KPackageKit
and integrate debconf support which is more important
atm, if you are willing to help I'd appreciate.

This project looks very promising - and it

a few features of my universal application

How's the current state of the project? Will

Thanks for your reply!
