  * revert again:
  * lp:~mvo/software-center/lp917096:
    - fix crash when opening a debfile and add regression test
      (LP: #917096)
  * softwarecenter/
    - trivial change to make region tag prefix "iso3166::" to align
      with the latest debtags upstream plans

  [ Kiwinote ]
  * softwarecenter/ui/gtk3/
    - disable navigating back by pressing the backspace key because it has
      started showing dodgy side effects - use ctrl+[ or alt+LEFT instead
  * remember the scroll position when navigating back to a list view,
    this only works in the available pane (LP: #852763)
  * correctly theme the channel selector menus (LP: #921477)
  * trigger pot file rebuild

  [ Barneedhar (jokerdino) ]
  * softwarecenter/
    - fix broken string (LP: #936403)

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * utils/piston-helpers/ Fix weblive helper to work with
    Precise's python-x2go.
