Bug Description

We want to add the mediascanner scope into the default unity8 experience. Especially since we're removing the click scope (in favor of the app drawer in the launcher). So by default, the scopes window is just blank (bug 1668700). :(

mediascanner2 and its dependencies will need a MIR. I'll look into doing that (done -- bug 1669546). (The scope itself already has passed MIR review: bug 1218409)

@laney, no technical work past simply seeding the package by adding it to the Recommends of unity8-desktop-session.

(The scope is already used by default in the Touch images, it just never got added in the desktop ones.)

Ok,

  Need to get 0 B/1173 kB of archives.

That doesn't sound too bad, so please go ahead.

Assuming this won't change anything for U7?

No, it shouldn't change anything for unity7. Different scope system.

Thanks!
