Re: Keep or remove software-center?

I just noticed that we still have software-center in yakkety. It

gnome-software a while ago, and it isn't shipped on any image/flavor.

Is there still some reason to keep it, or someone who wants to

maintain it in Ubuntu? If not, I think we should remove it.

My thoughts at the time we proposed GNOME Software was we should keep it for one cycle as a fallback and then drop it. So I'd be happy to see it dropped in Yakkety.
