** Also affects: gnome-software (Ubuntu Yakkety)
   Importance: Medium
       Status: Fix Committed

** Also affects: gnome-software (Ubuntu Xenial)
   Importance: Undecided
       Status: New

** Description changed:

- Changelog information is downloaded from changelogs.ubuntu.com. These
- must all be loaded before the updates tab is populated.
+ [Impact]
+ GNOME Software is slow to show anything when updates are available due to 
downloading Changelog information.
  
- This is slow because:
- - Changelogs are downloaded for non-GUI packages (bug 1554166)
- - Changelogs are downloaded sequentially.
+ [Test Case]
+ 1. Open GNOME Software when you have many updates to make and/or a very slow 
connection to changelogs.ubuntu.com
  
- Downloading in parallel would speed this up significantly.
+ Expected result:
+ The home screen is quickly shown
+ 
+ Observed result:
+ The home screen takes many seconds to show
+ 
+ [Regression potential]
+ Low. We now just download these on demand.
