Not proposing gnome-packagekit for 2.28

Quite a few people have asked me the same question...

I do not want to propose gnome-packagekit for 2.28, but instead am
intending to propose it during the 2.29 cycle. At this stage
translated strings are still changing quite a bit, and lot of the UIs
I'm unhappy with as they need quite a bit of redesign/polish. Also,
quite a few distros have yet to write backends for PackageKit. Most of
the few remaining distros are mostly in the process of writing, or
discussing how to write, a backend.

Just for reference, gnome-packagekit has compile time deps of:

packagekit-glib >= 0.4.4
GLib >= 2.14.0
Gtk+ >= 2.16.0
D-Bus >= 1.1.2
GConf >= 0.22
D-Bus-glib >= 0.73
libnotify >= 0.4.3
libunique >= 1.0.0
gnome-menus >= 2.24.1
Gio >= 2.18.0
DeviceKit-power >= 007
libcanberra >= 0.10

Licence GPLv2+, uses gnome FTP for releases and gnome git for
development. Translated by the gnome translation teams.
I'm pretty sure none of those should pose any great problems.

Anyway, if anyone has any great argument about why I shouldn't propose
gnome-packagekit for 2-29 (or why I should do it for 2-27) please
shout now. I'm also not sure whether to propose it for the desktop set
or something else. Ideas welcome.
