Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Center, Ubuntu Maverick

When viewing a test app in the "Independent" repository (currently the app-review-board PPA), the details view displays incorrect values for the application name and summary text. It appears that the summary text is displayed where the application name should be and the package name is displayed where the summary text should be.

Refer to the attached screenshot if you'd like to see for yourself.

Hi Gary. Shifting pkgname to summary field and summary to title field, is desired behaviour for non app pkgs per the spec. See software item information
