Bug Description

The "only distribute in the following countries" is not functioning properly. If I add the exception for my country, I still cannot see the application.
For instance, davmor2 is in the UK, adding UK and he cannot see the app.

The whitelist enforcement code in software-center was only tested with a single whitelisted country. It looks at all the whitelist tags sent by the server and skips the app if any of them are not your country. A fix is on its way.
