Bug#391023: XS-Vcs-field


in bug #391023, this description of this field is given:
+    <tag><tt>XS-Vcs-*</tt>
+      <item>
+      (where <em>Vcs</em> is the acronym for <em>Version Control System</em>,
+      and <tt>*</tt> stands for one of the Vcs supported by the package
+      tracking system: <tt>bzr</tt>, <tt>cvs</tt>, <tt>darcs</tt>,
+      <tt>git</tt>, <tt>hg</tt>, <tt>svn</tt>, <tt>tla</tt>)
+      <p>
+      Value of this field should be an URL pointing to where the repository of
+      the given package is available. The information is meant to be useful for
+      the final user of the package in case he is looking for the latest work
+      done on the package (e.g. for the patch fixing a bug tagged as
+      <tt>pending</tt> in the bug tracking system). The URL should be meaningful
+      for the given Vcs and should better be version agnostic. If possible, the
+      URL should point to a resource accessible to the final user and from which
+      the latest repository snapshot can be easily obtained.
+      </p>
+      <p>
+      In the following example, an instance of the field for a Subversion
+      repository of the <package>vim</package> package is shown. Note how the
+      URL is in the <tt>svn://</tt> scheme (instead of <tt>svn+ssh://</tt>) and
+      how it points to the <file>trunk/</file> branch.
+      <example>
+  Source: vim
+  Section: editors
+  Priority: optional
+  &lt;snip&gt;
+  XS-Vcs-Svn: svn://svn.debian.org/svn/pkg-vim/trunk/packages/vim
+      </example>
+      </p>
+    </item>

Is this desciption correct?
