Thanks for your suggestions.

GLR means "Generalized Left-to-right Rightmost deviation parser" or
maybe "Generalized LR parser". EBNF is the Extended Backus–Naur Form.
Acronyms like these - i.e. LL, LL(k), SLR, LALR - are pretty common when
talking about parsers.

RPF is actually a typo, I meant to point to the archived Request For
Packaging (RFP) bug in Debian, see here:

That last sentence isn't meant to be part of the long description of the
package. I wasn't sure how to make that clear.
