This is an automated bug report.
I have recently conducted a mass spelling check of Debian package
descriptions. In the process, some other errors were also detected,
such as capitalization, word wrap, and indentation problems.
Some notable guidelines that I used in the check include:
The names of languages (English, French, etc.) are capitalized in
English. Acronyms should be in all capital letters.
In general, words should not be abbreviated as part of the
description. Exceptions include standard abbreviations like "etc.".
This is especially important for proper keyword searches.
- Word joining
For various reasons, technical terms tend to be artificially joined
to form new words, like "bugreport". While this may be acceptable
in an informal context, such words should be written separately in
package descriptions, for clarity and to aid in searching.
In some cases where there the spelling check uncovered other errors, I
have made other edits in the diff for purposes of grammar and clarity.
There appear to be one or more errors in the description for this
package. A unified diff follows at the end of this message. You
should be able to apply it to your source tree by piping this message
directly into a command line like:
There is a chance that this may not work if your control has been
modified from the version of your source package in the Debian
archive. If so, you will have to apply the diff by hand. When doing
so, please take note if there are multiple corrections on the same
line of the diff.
If you believe this correction to be in error, please contact me
before closing this bug so that we can come to an understanding, and
so that provisions can be made for future spelling checks.
If you are not a native English speaker and would like assistance
improving your description, contact
