I know it's not released yet. I know it's subject to change.

The question is, if I'm trying to make one of the first 100 apps for Ubuntu phone that aren't horrible, what libraries can I expect to depend on?

Like if someone at Canonical working on the project has a dev-phone, what is the output of dpkg --get-selections?

I think getting at least a "probably this" list out there might get people developing less trivial applications for the phone earlier, even if the list is subject to change.

Ubuntu touch maybe a package list?

That is still being finalized, we should have a pretty good answer by the time the Nexus Galaxy images and source code is released

The image is out and you had the first answer. Fair opportunity to dump a package list before another answer gets added. – RobotHumans Feb 23 '13 at 17:32
