Bug Description

following this question: https://answers.launchpad.net/xbmc/+question/177432

hello,

as i asked in AskUbuntu here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/69914/why-isnt-xbmc-media-center-in-ubuntu-software-center
why isn't the XBoxMediaCenter (aka: xbmc) isn't in Ubuntu's official repos.? isn't it open source?

i realize Debian is the main source of the packages, but can't Ubuntu devs. add a package by themselves?

i doubt the fact the xbmc maintainers can make the PPA suitable for Precise in time for 12.04 release.. and third, no, i don't like installing PPA's for brand new software, but for software updates..

Since xbmc is fully open sourced, and the licensed issue is long behind us (as can be read here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=469397 and here: http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/7983 ) i believe Ubuntu should add this (and maybe also Boxee) to the latest and greatest selection of software in the USC

thanks in advance.

Uri
