Bug#384328: Typo in short and long package description

Tobias Toedter a écrit :
Package: libc6-i386
Version: 2.3.6-15
Severity: normal


I believe you've made a typo in the short and long description of this package. It's the same text as for libc6-amd64. It should probably read that this package is targetted at the i386 platform (not amd64).

Description: GNU C Library: 32bit shared libraries for AMD64
 This package includes shared versions of the standard C
 library and the standard math library, as well as many others.
 This is the 32bit version of the library, meant for AMD64 systems.

I don't really see the problem. This package will only work on an AMD64 system (because it is an amd64.deb package), so the description is correct. And it also says it is a 32-bit version of the libraries.

Doing s/AMD64/i386/g would make the description totally wrong.
