You do realize that dpkg treats "0.98" as less than "0.98pre8", don't you?

This should probably go in "games" or maybe "graphics" depending on what a
"window sitter" is.

The second, third, and fourth lines of the extended description should be
indented one space.

Also, the description doesn't actually tell me much.

What is a "window sitter"?  A baby sitter for windows?  I do not understand.

"to make your life with X rich and fruitful" either sounds like a joke or
very bad advertising.  If it is the latter it has no place in the package
description, which needs to be informative.

Instead of that second sentence, I would say "Animation and other
configuration is done with a pop-up menu."

"Originally inspired with" should probably be "Originally inspired by".

But the most important thing is to tell the user what a "window sitter" is.
I think I'm up on my jargon, but I don't know what you're talking about
