I propose keeping this uncapitalized, for consistency with other
packages where the leading character is never capitalized (read
"should never be").

To include your suggestion to use the "official" capitalization, I
changed the beginning of the boilerplate to:

Description: network UPS tools - core system
 Network UPS Tools (NUT) is a client/server monitoring system that allows computers to share

as told in my prev. mail, it's ok.

I think that what Justin proposed still keeps that distinction. When
saying "no need to quote", we were just saying that, as "client" and
"server" are English words and used with their general meaning, they
don't really need to be quoted.

I think that Justin was commenting his own change here. From "This
package provides the core system."  That sentence, alon, triggers the
silent question "the core of what?".

The proposed rewrite " This package provides NUT's core system"
answers that question.
