Software lets you install and update applications and system extensions.
Software uses a plugin architecture to separate the frontend from the
technologies that are used underneath. Currently, a PackageKit plugin provides
data from a number of traditional packaging systems, such as rpm or apt. An
appdata plugin provides additional metadata from locally installed data in the
appdata format.

* debian/rules:
- hack to include some translations, that way "Ubuntu Software" is not
unstranslated on the iso. We can drop that once we get a langpack 
update. That includes the strings from the locales that 
have translations on launchpad (without de/it/pt which are not needed 
because their translation is the original english string)
