- The package will be used to handle Ubuntu Advantage subscriptions on the desktop, including ESM and livepatch integrations. Having a service will make easier to do integration with different parts of the desktop without having to reimplement similar code as we are doing today.

- No CVEs/security issues in this software in the past as it's a new project.

- no `suid` or `sgid` binaries
- no executables in `/sbin` and `/usr/sbin`
TODO: - Package installs services but without rights restriction, we might want to investigate lowering permissions
- Packages does not open privileged ports (ports < 1024)
- Packages does not contain extensions to security-sensitive software

[Quality assurance - function/usage]

[Quality assurance - maintenance]

- The package isn't availabe in Debian since the Ubuntu Advantage service is specific to our distro.
- The package does not deal with exotic hardware we cannot support

[Quality assurance - testing]
TODO: - The package does not run a test at build time yet, that's something we will work on before promotion
TODO: - The package does not run an autopkgtest yet, another point to resolve before promotion.
- The package does have no failing autopkgtests right now since it doesn't have any

[Quality assurance - packaging]
- debian/watch is not present because it is a native package

- building from the current vcs, lintian has only one warning about the debhelper version being outdated

# lintian --pedantic
P: ubuntu-advantage-desktop-daemon source: package-uses-old-debhelper-compat-version 10

Using an outdated version is a choice because we aim at SRUing the service back to bionic with one source.

- Lintian overrides are not present

- This package does not rely on obsolete or about to be demoted packages.
- This package has no python2 or GTK2 dependencies

- The package will be installed by default, but does not ask debconf questions

- Packaging and build is easy, link to d/rules

[UI standards]
- Application is end-user facing through polkit permission prompts, Translation is present, via standard gettext, the package will be translated on launchpad

- No further depends or recommends dependencies that are not yet in main

[Standards compliance]
- This package correctly follows FHS and Debian Policy

- Owning Team will be desktop-packages
- Team is not yet, but will subscribe to the package before promotion

- This does not use static builds
- This does not use vendored code
