Actually it should start without an article :)
Short descriptions are supposed to work as "noun phrases" or "is a"
phrase, i.e. <package> is a <synopsis>.
In this case "VTE based super lightweight terminal emulator" or maybe
"lightweight terminal emulator based on VTE" might work.
(The whole sentence then would be, with <package> and <snyopsis>
"evilvte is a lightweight terminal emulator based on VTE"
