Bug#959897: RFS: awf-gtk2/2.0.0-3 [ITP] -- A widget factory is a theme preview application for GTK

Hi! Thank you.

The version is -3 because I uploaded some test versions on mentors.debian.net. I tried to upload 2.0.0-1 many times, but it was refused, so I changed version number.

I'm confused about the lintian override (description-synopsis-starts-with-article) and "A Widget Factory". I use the lintian ovevride for initial "A"... Does I change the name to "A Widget Factory" anyway?

You say "Also: despite GTK2 being deprecated, having the gtk2 package would be great.", I agree x10. I have updated this tool to port a gtk2 theme to gtk3.

Changes since the last upload:

    * Initial debian package release (Closes: #959434)

The package looks almost good to go:

* Debian revision: how come it's -3 on an initial upload?  Especially with
   nothing in the changelog?

   We don't bump a version just because you've tested it at home -- it often
   takes many, many test builds to get things right.  An exception is if a
   version of the package has been released to an audience, be they users of
   some Debian-based distribution, your team at works, etc -- having two
   different versions with the same number would give them a hardship.

* the real name (according to a Lintian override) is "A Widget Factory",
   yet you capitalize only the article.  For an English speaking person,
   that's for sure some common thing.  Could you please put it into title
   case (Ie, Starting Every Word with a Cap Letter)?

Both of these are common to either variant (gtk2 and gtk3).

Also: despite GTK2 being deprecated, having the gtk2 package would be great.
It already proven useful in finding out regressions in a theme I maintain
-- a bunch of functionality is wrong in gtk3, having both side-to-side
made that immediately visible.
