Bug Description

* Impact
gnome-software displays only 10 reviews and doesn't give you a way to load more

* Test case
open a popular application (eg. Audacity, GIMP) in g-s and look at the reviews, there should be more than 10

* Regression potential
we load more data so the details page might be a bit slower to load

------------------------

Using xenial it seems there is no way to load more review? I reported that upstream but it might be a choice for them since they don't have lot of reviews on their server

That commit suggests the UI exists
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-software/commit/?id=a92da2e47478ef9c124367ad2a87efcd3f2375c0

There might be a need to write the backend side though

The Ubuntu plugin only downloads one page of reviews (10). I didn't update this because some packages have hundreds of reivews which is likely to be slow to download or make the UI slow.

The upstream design has a button to download more (discussed this issue while designing) but this is not implemented in GNOME Software. It is non-trivial to implement.

I figured this is not a blocker and can be solved post 16.04.

If we want, we can download more than one page (e.g. 30 reviews) if the 10 seems too small.

including a bit more review seems like it would be better to me, what do you think?

FWIW +1 on a "few" more reviews.

If we can sort on Most Recent, that is worth some consideration as well, taking the most recent over whatever the alternative is.

The real fix would be to have an UI to go the next page but until that's worked on Robert increased the number of reviews loaded by default
