Bug Description

In software-center, clicking on Help -> Terms of service currently takes you to https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/tos
Ideally this would take you to https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/tos/ (including the final slash), as this will save one 301 redirect and make the experience faster.

When you first attempt to purchase an app, it displays the same URL within a dialog. In this case, the URL you really want is https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/tos/plain/ (also including the final slash), as that will render the terms of service without the full header and footer, in a plain minimalistic page.
