[Bug 1570479] Re: [UIFe][FFe] Change application Name etc to Ubuntu Software


FWIW, I mostly agree with #4 and #5, but if this is to go ahead then I
concur with Steve that SRU is more appropriate.

There will most definitely be further updates for gnome-software before
16.04.1; the string change can go in before then. This gives time to
both translators and the documentation team (and documentation
translators, for that matter).

Suggest part of SRU verification ought to be to make sure that the
desktop docs are updated at the same time.

There are other places where the program is referred to as "Software" or
"GNOME Software" in strings; should those all be changed too?

  [UIFe][FFe] Change application Name etc to Ubuntu Software

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  We would like to change some strings in GNOME's Software application
  to "Ubuntu Software".

  The main reason is that our users are used to the old Ubuntu Software
  Center and many docs talk about it.  By changing the name to Ubuntu
  Software we can offer some assurances that it's the right tool for the
  job.  Our patches also make Software on Ubuntu very Ubuntu centric.

  It is not the intention to claim Software as our own work.

  .desktop "Name=" changes to "Ubuntu Software"
  Window title changes to "Ubuntu Software"
  Icon changes to the u-s-c icon

  I have reached out to the upstream project and we've agreed that these
  changes can go ahead.
