Bug Description

Due to a error in the glib bindings submit a review or submiting usefulness data is very slow and often fails entirely:

TEST CASE:
- open software-center
- go to a app with reviews
- click on "useful": "YES"
- verify that it takes a long time (and often fails entirely)

- install new version of software-center, python-gi from quantal-proposed
- repeat the above steps and verify that it works this time

REGRESSION POTENTIAL: low, the threds_init() calls was there for all previous pervsions but the crash in pygobject from bug #1078297 made us disable it with the ill effects from disabling like the hang that is outlined here.

Sorry Michael for the duplicate work. I already uploaded an SRU for this two weeks ago, but it's still hanging in the SRU review queue. I rejected your's and will make this a duplicate.

Hello Michael, or anyone else affected,

Accepted software-center into quantal-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/software-center/5.4.1.3 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

  * lp:~mvo/software-center/fix-for-unusual-deb-lp1067634:
    - fix crash in deb packages without a description (LP: #1067634)
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/lp1009967:
    - fix the "top rated" display to match the spec by also showing
      the already installed items (LP: #1009967)
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/recoverable-errors-lp1051829:
    - send a custom duplicate signature so that the recoverable errors
      on transaction failures are broken down by error_code instead
      of all put into the same bucket (LP: #1051829)
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/5.4-fix-threading
    - Properly init threads now that the pygobject crash is fixed.
      This will fix the slow and unreliable submit of reviews
