Bug Description

Today there are two binary packages generated from the source: webbrowser-app, and webbrowser-app-autopilot.

webbrowser-app installs a plugin (that can potentially be used by other applications to embed a browser, see bug #1177964) in usr/lib/*/qt5/qml/Ubuntu/Browser/, and other unrelated files (executable in /usr/bin/, desktop file and icon).

Applications that want to embed a browser don’t care about anything else than the plugin, so the binary package should be split in two, one package containing the plugin, and another one depending on the first one, containing the executable, the desktop file and the icon.

Talk to kaleo about this. He has an idea about having this (and other similar useful) components be part of an extras/plugins package that resides with the sdk
