What is it a GTK front end _to_? I don't think this is too important
from the user's point of view.

I suggest either:
 - s/GTK front end/GTK tool/
 - s/GTK front end/tool/

The second sentence is muddled and run-on. What do you mean by "to ACL
and unix files permissions"? I suggest re-writing it in two or possibly
three separate sentences. Since this is an ACL permissions editor, it is
probably a good idea to have a separate mention of ACL and regular
user/group file permissions.

Some mention of just what ACLs are and why one would want to manage them
should be added.
