Package: linux-2.6
Severity: minor

Hash: SHA1

Example from apt-cache search:
linux-image-2.6.18-2-xen-vserver-686 - Linux 2.6.18 image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4

The version is specified in the package name, the package version, and
the short description; surely the one in the short description can go.
It'd have the nice advantage of getting the apt-cache search line down
below 80 characters:

linux-image-2.6.18-2-xen-vserver-686 - Linux image on PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4

Also, in some other minor wording changes, "on" should probably be
"for". The short description could probably be further improved to:

linux-image-2.6.18-2-xen-vserver-686 - Kernel for PPro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4

which has the advantage of getting the fact that it is a kernel into the
short description (and is even shorter).
