Mainly I'd take "Python" out of the short description (it's already
in the package name, the debtags, and the archive section!) and
replace it with a clue to what ISO 8583 is. Also, make the title of
the ISO standard more clearly a quote. I'd suggest:
Description: library for ISO 8583 transactions
This library provides a pure Python interface for electronic
transactions using ISO 8583 ("Standard for Financial Transaction
Card Originated Messages - Interchange message specifications").
The vast majority of transactions made at Automated Teller
Machines and the MasterCard and Visa networks use ISO 8583
at some point.
JBR with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
