The correct icon should be the orange one (check attach)
The correct description should be some thing like this (please recheck):

Hmm... this doesn't show up in quantal. Perhaps this is only an issue with precise.

I rechecked and can confirm still an issue on Precise.

Well when I look at apps directory I see only one entry in precise and quantal respectively and it doesnt show duplication in quantal in USC

furthermore in the extras repository there is one release for oneiric and precise each

setting as incomplete wrt the App review board.

Thanks Bhavani.

There is also an Oneric entry that does not show on the global search: but its there if you specify distro:

This entry also has one of the icons you can see duplicated on the Software Center, perhaps it was badly tagged?
