Let me repeat my response that I sent already to the bugreport:
| Of course it isn't [the final version of the description]; it's just
| the short blurb that can be seen on the upstream website about it.
| Having a full fledged description at ITP stage means that one already
| started at working on the package - and given that an ITP is meant to
| be there so that we don't duplicate work and /personally/ the package
| description is something that I rather *not* think as first of when
| starting to work on a package sending out the ITP with something
| final package description is backwards, counter-productive and
| anachronistic to me. :)
But for a quick roundup: gitosis is offering (key-based) ssh access
with ACLs to a git repository, including broken down to even branch
level based ACLs.
So long! :)
