Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

In today's build, fresh installation of maverick amd64 - in software center when i went about trying to install software that i use, for every time that i clicked on the install button, the sudo password was requested for proxy access. I thought it makes sense to only request it once per session!

Please check it out :)

  * softwarecenter/backend/
    - use the system-wide proxy instead of the gnome
      one by default (LP: #628823)
    - when installing a purchase only update from the just
      added repository to avoid breaking if other sources.list
      entries are incorrect
    - fix signal emite in TransactionStopped
  * debian/control:
    - depend on current aptdaemon

  * software-center:
    - import Decimal before we need it as a workaround for (LP: #607705)
      (testcase: LANGUAGE=tr_TR LC_ALL=tr_TR.utf8 ./software-center)
  * softwarecenter/apt/
    - use ascii_lower() rather than lower()
      much thanks to M. Vefa Bicakci via bug 581207

  * software-center/db/
    - reset app.pkgname once we know deb.pkgname
  * softwarecenter/view/
    - fail nicely if pkg not in cache (ie all deb files...) (LP: #634060)
