GSoC 2011: PackageKit and AppStream integration for Software Center

Hi everyone,

Just a quick announce that I will be working this summer as a GSoC student, for the openSUSE Project. My mentor will be Vincent Untz, the so called “father of GNOME 3″ :-)

What I’m aiming to do is modify Ubuntu Software Center to use PackageKit (an universal package management toolkit) as a installation backend, and also integrate it with the AppStream initiative (a cross-distro project for making software installation easier).

My full proposal can be read here (fixed). Feedback and suggestions are, as always, appreciated.

I would like to thank ROSEdu (which I am a member of) for the support ;-)
