Description Allan Day 2013-09-26 11:12:03 EDT
Right now, gpk-application (now known as "Packages") is bundled as a part of gnome-packagekit. Since we now have the new Software application - which is installed by default - it would be confusing to include gpk-application by default as well. Two GUIs for installing software would be really weird, and could really confuse users ("which one am I supposed to use?!")

My recommendation would be to split out gpk-application into a separate package. This way people can install it and continue to use it if they really want, but it won't get in the way for those who aren't interested.

this is done in later releases.
