Subject: Formatting description in debian.control
All the above listed packages have a list of items in their description
in debian.control. In order to improve dselect and how it is presented
to the user it would be better to use a uniform way of listing these.
A list like this (MODERATE?):
- Item 1
- Item 2
Or a list like this (BEST?):
* Item 1
* Item 2
Or something like this (BEST?):
* First tool: Short one line description of the first tool.
* Second tool: Short one line description of the second tool.
* Third tool: Short one line description of the third tool.
Or a little more confusing list like this (WORSE?):
o Item 1.
o Item 2.
Whatever you think is the best, but let's agree on one way of doing
