package yesterday and had some questions about it.
Why is it necessary to modify individual packages so that GNOME
Software won't uninstall them?
Is update-manager being a dependency of ubuntu-desktop not enough to
prevent it from being uninstalled?
If it is necessary to modify every package which a metapackage depends
on how is this work being tracked?
What checks are in place to ensure that no packages are missed and that
new additions get appropriately changed?

update-manager (1:18.04.11) bionic; urgency=medium
* Add Appstream metadata with compulsory_for_desktop fields to prevent
the accidental uninstallation of ubuntu-desktop in GNOME Software.
ubuntu-desktop depends on update-manager.
* Build-Depend on dh-python
* Update translation template
