Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Center's "Other" section under "Installed Software" lists apps I've installed through Adobe Air. Currently this lists for me:
* Adobe Air
* Pandora
* TweetDeck

Pandora and TweetDeck both show in 'More info' as though they were open-source packages in Ubuntu's core distribution:

  License: Open Source
  Updates: Canonical provides critical updates for TweetDeck.

Air itself correctly lists:

  License: Unknown
  Updates: Canonical does not provide updates for Adobe Air. Some updates may be provided by the third party vendor.

I installed Air from Adobe's 32-bit .deb package, following these directions to modify it to fake the arch to get it installing on 64-bit 10.10: http://www.jamesward.com/2010/10/14/install-adobe-air-on-64-bit-ubuntu-10-10/

  * improve the feedback for the gwibber interaction

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/apt/aptcache.py:
    - don't crash if we have pkg in cache, but no candidate (LP: #713878)
  * softwarecenter/db/application.py:
    - only return the component listed in a desktop file if the package is not

      now so precise we don't need special casing

  [ Gary Lasker ]
  * softwarecenter/view/appdetailsview_gtk.py:
    - don't show the "write a review" link until we have the correct
      text and show/hide status, avoids a delayed update in the UI

  * lp:~mmcg069/software-center/small-rnr-tweaks:
    - add nice human readable time delta string to the review
    - tweak review UI
  * lp:~mmcg069/software-center/rnr-bitesize-tweaks:
    - subdue the inappropriate link
