Bug Description

1. Go to <>.

What you see:
* "Details for 'Unity Buss'."
* "Submitted by Malin Krosby Bruland on 2012-04-19 12:38 - 2 months ago"
* "Department you have chosen:"
* "Back to your applications"

What you should see:
* A 403 error, ideally with appropriate links to get started on submitting your own application.

You shouldn't be able to access other people's submission pages, for a variety of reasons:
* Developers may want their submissions to be a surprise.
* The "Buy" button doesn't work.
* Much of the text assumes that the reader is the submitter.
* It risks myapps. competing with the Web directory for in Web search results.

From what I know, this was intended for free software submissions, and lets the ARB have people help out with reviewing the packages without having the ability to change the submission state, as the ~ubuntu-app-review-contributors can do.

I wasn't expecting this to start happening so fast. In <>, an app developer promotes their application by linking to its myapps submission page.
