http://www.csc.fi/elmer/ and http://www.csc.fi/elmer/documentation
both seem to redirect to http://www.csc.fi/english/pages/elmer, so
why not just point directly at the page it's trying to herd us
towards...

I notice that comma in your versioning's causing some trouble in the
PTS... I hope you don't end up needing an epoch.

When it says it's a "package", it means in the confusing upstream
Fortran-package sense - a description of the suite, not the
individual Debian package.  I'd steal a phrase from the website:

   Description: finite element multiphysics suite - binaries

The one thing I know about multiphysics is how you spell it.  "Open
source" goes without saying here.  Now for a wave of trivial
punctuation consistency-fixes:

(Does this last paragraph really need to be repeated in the
boilerplate?)

There's a missing word or something - is "finite element" modifying
"files"?

   Description: finite element multiphysics suite - architecture-independent files

And likewise:

Becomes:

It occurs to me as I fiddle with the commas: what good is this
symlink, if it's not one of the things developers use and it's not
needed otherwise?  Reorganise:

   This package contains the static libraries and header files for eio, huti, and
   matc, as well as the Elmer solver shared library symlink. These are used for
   developing Elmer, and are not needed to run the software.
