2011-08-25 10:31:32 Jeremy Bicha description According to the specification, if package A suggests package B, then package B should show up as an addon of package A in Software Center. This isn't happening. A specific example is wesnoth-1.8 which suggests wesnoth-1.8-music. If it's not desired to show all suggested packages as addons, then the specification needs to be updated so that packagers know what to expect. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SoftwareCenter#Add-on_packages ProblemType: Bug DistroRelease: Ubuntu 11.10 Package: software-center 4.1.18 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 3.0.0-9.12-generic 3.0.3 Uname: Linux 3.0.0-9-generic x86_64 Architecture: amd64 Date: Thu Aug 25 06:26:15 2011 PackageArchitecture: all ProcEnviron: PATH=(custom, no user) LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SHELL=/bin/bash SourcePackage: software-center UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install) According to the specification, if package A recommends or suggests package B, then package B should show up as an addon of package A in Software Center.
