Bug Description

When visiting the Web Catalog with Chromium web-browser, the release version of Ubuntu is not recognized correctly. Currenlty I'm using Chromium 18 on Ubuntu Precise Pangolin (12.04 LTS). However, the Web Catalog interprets my system as Oneiric (11.10). Example: When visiting the link https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/audacity/ , the Web Catalog shows me "Audacity is also available for your version of Ubuntu". Clicking on this notice redirects me to the Oneiric package: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/oneiric/audacity/ , where I get displayed the "available on the Software-Center" button.

Web Catalog regocnizes my Ubuntu release correctly when using Firefox. I haven't evaluated this with other browsers so far.

Thanks Andre, indeed, the currently deployed code is only setup to recognise up to Oneiric (Firefox doesn't give us enough info in the useragent to determine the distroseries).

For whoever gets to fix this first: the list of series at:
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~canonical-ca-hackers/ubuntu-webcatalog/trunk/view/head:/src/webcatalog/utilities.py#L195
should be a config setting (as it is with sca).
