I can understand why leading articles in the short > description are bad (screws sorting and wastes limited space) but why > avoid them in the long description? Indeed a matter of personal taste. I'm not really fond of packages saying "A this for doing that..." as a beginning for their description. Still on matter of personal taste, I prefer: "Foo is a this for doing that..." This allows giving the official project name (sometimes with its official spelling, such as "MySQL", "SquirrelMail", etc.) as well as using a full sentence with a verb. As far as my understanding goes, "A this for doing that" is not a complete sentence as it's missing a leading verb. At least in French, such incomplete sentences without a "verbe principal" are to be avoided in written language.
