UI freeze exception: Remove stars and reference to non-existent "reviews"

Bug #538129 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2010-03-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-center (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu Software Center, Ubuntu Lucid

1. Navigate to any software listing screen (e.g. "Fonts").

What happens: All the rows have stars. The selected row says "0 reviews", suggesting that it is possible to review software, when it is not.

What should happen: There should be no stars and no references to "reviews".

We expected that the ratings and reviews feature could be completed for 2.0. Because it could not be completed, we need a UI freeze exception to remove traces of it that ended up in trunk.

From the foundations team status reports, I understand that an attempt to implement ratings&reviews for lucid is still in progress, so deferring this UIFe request until the outcome of that is known. If ratings&reviews doesn't pan out, then this exception is granted.

Have gotten confirmation from Barry that R&R is deferred; UIFe granted.

This bug was not completely fixed by s-c 1.1.18. In the 'per source' views (the sections obtained by clicking the '+' to the left of 'get software') the stars are still present.
