Repeated "ssh" - remove one.  Maybe expand "ACLs" either here, or in
the descriptions.  If it's such a key feature, why isn't it in the
longer description?

The package name gives me more clue about what it does than the short
description, so maybe a total rewrite is a good idea: "ssh gateway
based on permission lists, not keys or passwords"?  But I might still
misunderstand what sshproxy actually does and I've not time to install
it today.

Should be "This package provides the mysql backend." or maybe
"This package provides a mysql backend."

No space before : in English, please.  (So "plugins: console-extra,")
