I've been looking for any sign of anyone else referring to LaCie
producing "newgen" products, and I don't see any. In fact the top
google hit for "LaCie newgen" is comparing two different products, one
branded as "LaCie" and the other as "Newgen". If the word is supposed
to mean just "up-to-date" then probably it should be left out, to
avoid confusion in five years time when lacie-uboot only works with

Once it falls below three items you can't really call it a
"collection" of tools - I wouldn't normally bother making it a
bulleted list, either, but never mind. Making the wording a bit less
repetitive and adjusting the indent, what I end up with is this
(presented as it would appear in the control file):
Description: LaCie U-Boot netconsole shell
LaCie network storage products offer a U-Boot netconsole, which can
be accessed using the tools provided in this package:
* lacie-uboot-shell - a simple interactive client which can connect
to the U-Boot netconsole using only a network cable;
* lacie-nas-updater - a script to update your product bootloader
or firmware using lacie-uboot-shell (requires a TFTP server).

sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
