Yes, what is the purpose of this library?  This helps planning upgrades.

Other advisories always give a short summary of what the software does.

Actually, I think this is against libplib1, which seems to be:

 Provides a Joystick interface, a simple GUI built on top of OpenGL,
 some standard geometry functions, a sound library and a simple scene
 graph API built on top of OpenGL.

Oh, great, this probably does not run on my servers, so no need to plan

Thank you for updating DLAs, like DSAs are doing, to add a short summary of the
purpose of the package, and give the correct package name so that it can be
quickly found.
