To be sincere i left that field just like they were when i adopted this package.
I've just improved this a little bit:
Description: A terminal-based text editor for novice users.
This editor ('ee', easy editor) is intended to be a simple, easy to use
terminal-based screen oriented editor that requires no instruction to
use. Its primary use would be for people who use computers for simple
tasks like e-mail.
Its simplified interface is highlighted by the use of pop-up menus which
make it possible for users to carry out tasks without the need to
remember commands. An information window at the top of the screen shows
the user the operations available with control-keys.
Opinions are (more than) welcome.
