PackageKit allows performing simple software management tasks over a DBus
interface e.g. refreshing the cache, updating, installing and removing
software packages or searching for multimedia codecs and file handlers.
This package provides an advanced library to access PackageKit using GLib.
It makes use of only async D-Bus calls and provides high level tasks which
peform the "transaction dance".
