Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

In the list of third party repositories names read: «JDownloader PPA», «PPA for Banshee Team», «elementarydesktop», «nautilus-elementary» and so forth.

Where did it get those names from? I already have all that repositories named correctly and nicely in the software sources: «JDownloader», «Banshee», «Elementary Desktop», «Elementary Nautilus», etc.

Screenshot is attached.

I know it's rather minor and aesthetic, but don't Ubuntu aim to be nice?

Ubuntu version is 10.10.

The label used for any third-party archive is completely up to the provider of that archive. It's the "Label:" field from the archive's "Release" file. <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#channels>

For a PPA, Launchpad insists that you enter its label as a "Display name" field when you set up the PPA.

So if you think any archive has a bad label, contact the person who set it up.
