I'm replying because I wrote the templates. :) The problem is that the
long description is not contained in the *.changes files that the
"importer" process is parsing. The *.diff.gz file would need to be
unpacked and the description distilled from the debian/control file.
I'd know how to unpack gz files (import gzip) but don't have a proper
parser for diff files at hand (I don't suppose that the difflib does

If anyone has some Python code ready to do that I'll happily include
