Too late. Already done. :)

I'm open to suggestions. The importer that processes uploaded packages just 
takes into account the *.dsc and *.changes files AFAIK. None of them 
contain the one-line description of the package. I had to take the diff.gz 
(unless it's a native package) and extract the debian/control and parse 
it. Or perhaps "dpkg-source -x ...dsc" and then access 
$PKG/debian/control. Hmmm. Ideas?

Up to now I was too lazy to do that. But I understand that the description 
line is important.
