Bug Description

This is a feature request, not a bug.

Once one has clicked "install", the top level dialog box prevents access to all the wonderful information about the updates being installed. Granted, one should check before accepting these.. but.... I would prefer if I could still read details about what is being installed...

As a hobby coder, I realise this is extra work, but if the scrollArea and Description widgets were still acessible.. I would be delighted.

Everything else is added from synamtic package manager but naist-jpic, a japanese file

I too am interested in reading the changelogs whilst the install runs. Sad that I am.

Changed in update-manager:
