Launchpad does not know how Light Software Center tracks feature
planning or documentation.

    The details pane is already partially implemented, but we decided
    with mefrio to develop a backend library, and not to share a GUI (or
    at least not each part, since lubuntu too has some guideline).

        Stephen, are you going to work on this nice Details pane in
        Dan's mockup?

        And currently the naming is a bit different (and strange for me
        ^^) for
        the pane names.

             Whoa, this looks seriously cool! I couldn't try it myself
        yet, but
             I've reported the bug I'm experiencing.

             The build instructions have some typos in them, here's what
             for me:

             # To build the sources
             # To build the database
             cd db-build && sudo ./dbbuild -d /var/cache/lsc-vala.db
             # Then you are ready to try
             cd .. && src/light-software-center

             Spinner not spinning is a known bug reported at
             We did not suspect theme before; I've marked the theme as
             thanks for letting us know!

             I wonder how extensible Light Software Center is. I'm
        pretty sure
             every DE using it will eventually try to add more desktop
             integration features, e.g. showing installation progress in
             application launcher (similar to what USC does). Providing DE
             integration via extensions instead of forks would be great!

             Regarding showing dependency tree, I'm not sure what
        problem would
             that solve. It seems to be fine without it, so probably
        don't bother
             implementing it.

             Gotwig: yes. It's app-install-data, not USC who provides both
             descriptions and translations, so we inherit them
