PackageKit backend for Software Center: short week 7 report

Short weekly report is short, this week’s achievements:

- fixed the install/remove simulation bits (it can now tell what packages will be removed after applying changes)

- improved PackageInfo testing (works with both AptCache and PackageKit)

- found the problem with dynamic/static libs conflict: it is gio statically loaded from gtk and then Gio dynamically loaded from PackageKitGlib; loading Gio before everything seems to fix the conflict for now;

- got another round of refactor changes into trunk, thanks to mvo; this way my PK branch is one step closer to merging into software-center

ktnxbye :-)

    It would help to keep track of what’s accomplished and what’s not.

    Thank you and keep up with your amazing work :)
