[feature-request] Website/webpage for suggesting additions to the software-center

Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

No official system exists for suggesting/submitting software to the Ubuntu repositories, Canonical Partners repository, and the "For Purchase" section in Ubuntu Software Center.

I am suggesting that a web page is setup (conforming to the Ubuntu/Canonical design specification, and targeting developers and enterprise) to allow developers to submit software for download in the Software Center.

Currently developers and companies are confused as to how to get Canonical's attention and some just dont know that they can easily get their software included in Ubuntu's various repositories.

The webpage could be something like canonical.com/suggest or canonical.com/submit and it should follow the look of canonical's website. It should also be easy to access from ubuntu.com and canonical.com - with a link like "get your software into Ubuntu".

is this documentation https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AppReviews for submit an application enough for you or do you suggest something to do it directly under software-center and only for pay software?

Changed in software-center (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
