Get Muon ready
Description of the project: Muon, the apt frontend written by and for Kubuntu would be amazing to have in Debian. There are a great bit of ubuntuisms and ubuntu specific data that needs to be fixed up and provided in Debian. Besides this, there is also an additional set of 'improve muon' tasks attached to this project.
The applicant should first try to run the various muon application on kubuntu to get a feel of what it can do. Then try to build and run on debian to get a feel of what is missing.
