Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Some discussions that have been going on in the Desktop team:

- Remove Eclipse
  - Huge download
  - Only supports Java out of the box
  - The Eclipse brand is strong enough that it doesn't need promoting
- Replace chromium-bsu with tumiki-fighters
  - chromium has poor performance on non-3D accelerated hardware
- Add tuxpaint
  - We don't currently have any applications for children
  - Very well established project
  - Those whose children use it describe it as a killer app

TEST CASE:
1. install software-center from lucid proposed
2. go to the "featured" category
3. verify that eclipse, chromium-bsu are no longer there
4. verify that tuxpaint and tumiki-fighers is there

Michael, I think you make these changes, right? In any case, I agree strongly with removing eclipse. I agree with the reasoning behind removing chromium-bsu as well. Adding tuxpaint is fine, I don't care much either way. Thanks.

Borderline for SRUs, but okay for me, especially if we do that right after the lucid release.

Accepted software-center into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
