Bug Description

<>: "'Help With Payments' should open the default Web browser to ."

I think I'll take a look at this. It sounds straightforward enough.

Well I wrote, built and tested a patch for this (mostly just to get used to Ubuntu dev), but to be frank it's my first Ubuntu patch so I have no real idea how I should submit it.

Spencer, that's great! If you did the patch as a Bazaar branch, the first step is to upload the branch to Launchpad. <> Then in Launchpad, link the branch to this bug report.

If the patch is not in a branch, just make a diff file and attach it to this bug report directly. Thanks!

The attachment "software-center_13.10-0ubuntu3.debdiff" seems to be a debdiff. The ubuntu-sponsors team has been subscribed to the bug report so that they can review and hopefully sponsor the debdiff. If the attachment isn't a patch, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are member of the ~ubuntu-sponsors, unsubscribe the team.

@Spencer: thanks for your work. First, your patch is reversed (and thus won't apply). Second, please submit a merge proposal against lp:software-center, this is where development happens.

Unsubscribing sponsors.

Resubmitting. I'll look into how to propose merges with bzr, but I'm attaching this JIC.

This popped up in harvest and looks relevant still. The link proposed seems ok too. Trying to implement patch as proposed or else I'll adapt to current code state.
