HIG and gnome-packagekit

Any HIG dudes got a few minutes? The gnome-packagekit project has quite a few glade files that were quickly designed, and hence the GNOME HIG wasn't a primary concern. Now the applications are being used by more and more people I think it's important that we properly conform to the HIG.

If anyone wants to help out, please join the mailing list and send us a quick email. There's also a lot of other easy stuff to do in the TODO file if you have a spare few minutes. Thanks!
