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.
