Bug#139957: period at the end of short description?


	I seem to be a minority of one when it comes to thinking that
 some latitude could be left to developer in deciding about periods in
 short descriptions. But loot at the people for the idea of greater
 control: the luminaries list: Josip Rodin, Joey Hess, Colin Walters,
 Anthony Towns, Branden Robinson. Who am I, then, to stand in the way
 of greater control?
	I hereby withdraw the formal objection, though I am still
 opposed to adding what I consider to be unnecesary implemetation
 details to policy.
