PackageKit backend for Software Center: week 0 report

Not much to say about this first week of gsoc (Exams period hasn’t finished yet), so here it comes:

- had an IRC meeting with mentor vuntz of openSUSE and mvo of Ubuntu (the initial software-center author), got some things cleared up and planned the development

- according to my timeline, I now have the trunk version of software-center running in Debian wheezy; there is still work to do, but is an encouraging start;

next:

- work on a dummy install backend and a dummy package info provider; probably create an elegant way of switching backends;

other stuff:

- got interviewed for the openSUSE news :-)

This is it. See you next week.
