However, experience shows that maintainers often do not follow such advice and I prefer properly written abusive template than non rewritten templates. Here ar eproposed changes to templates (I have no comment for the control file). Rationale: -notes short descriptions should avoid using full sentences but are rather a kind of "title", hence my rewrite. Please note that the final dot is deliberately ommitted. - I use a short introduction in the templates' long descriptions to balance the fact that I propose "titles" as short descriptions.
