It's OK. We've got the bug report now, so that's better for tracking
from my side.

Do the new package descriptions assist in understanding what the
packages are doing?

LAVA is a complex product and we still need to add a lot more
documentation to the existing lava-server-doc. Nevertheless, LAVA does
have a high entry barrier, it requires a significant amount of sysadmin
and test writer time to setup and maintain. So there is an
expectation that the people looking at installing LAVA will have an
amount of familiarity with continuous integration and validation
testing. LAVA is also developing quickly, so the "experimental" remote
worker setup is both in regular use and due for an overhaul which will
completely change how the packages are configured. This method will not
be ready before the Jessie release but I'm already prepared to make
frequent backports to Jessie once those become available as well as
updates in a separate repository.
