Bug#364848: general: please have package short descriptions say what the package REALLY does

Package: general
Severity: normal

i think it will help to require short descriptions to make sense to
anybody who knows only about the most widely used terms.

often new packages are added like the following.  i do not mean to
pick on ndiswrapper at all; it was just the most recent example.

this bug applies to normal packages and not just kernel modules.

please note that few users will know what "ndis" is.


ndiswrapper-common - Userspace utilities for ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-source - Source for the ndiswrapper linux kernel module
ndiswrapper-utils - Userspace utilities for ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-utils-1.7 - Userspace utilities for ndiswrapper

-- System Information:
Debian Release: 3.1
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Kernel: Linux 2.6.doesntmatter
Locale: LANG=C, LC_CTYPE=C (charmap=ANSI_X3.4-1968)
