Proposal for a Sugar installer app for GNOME default installer software

Description

"Fedora 20's default GNOME3 graphical software installer tool fails to find Sugar, reportedly as Sugar is not considered to be an 'application'."

This is a significant problem. Sugar will be more successful if Fedora users can easily find it by a simple keyword search in the default installer. A user should not have to install a new installation app (yumex) in order to find Sugar. I suggest that the team create an "application" that (i) meets Fedora's criteria for applications and (ii) automatically executes a script that downloads and installs the necessary components of Sugar. Better yet, the Sugar Learning Platform Package App could even give a user a set of choices of available components and/or activity packages to add to the script.

I am running fedora 21 and I see sugar in GNOME-Software. But there are no sugar activities, neither as addons or separate apps.
