On package description quality


sometimes I read package descriptions I'm not happy with.
E.g. the description starts: "Foobar is a GTK+ application,
that enables blah..." where foobar is a user application,
not mainly for GTK+ programmers.  Of course, the user
doesn't/shouldn't care about GTK+ - and if, there's the
dependencies listed anyway.  I remember, that we have some
guidelines on package description, where you can read about
this basics, but I cannot remember the URI.  Could someone
help me, so that I can cite this guideline when filing a bug
against such packages?
