Re: [Design] removing scopes


Cool. So ebay and amazon scope has to be preinstalled to obtain priviledges. I bet for the same reason as in Ubuntu desktop where we badly need the amazon plugin to slow our system down.

I can understand the photo scope but as some Internet reviews also confirm, ebay and amazon scope are pretty useless and I bet hardly anyone would install them.

Actually, the permissions can be obtained-- use the unconfined template or
read_path/write_path in the security manifest. This will trigger a manual review
in the store of course (but as per store policy, Canonical-written scopes that
do this can be accepted without much fuss).
