Package: xdigger
Version: 1.0.10-2
Severity: important
Justification: section 2.3.3

Your package does not comply with the policy as it does not provide
a proper extended descrition. Policy section 2.3.3 states:

     The description should be written so that it gives the system
     administrator enough information to decide whether to install the

Take in account that package descriptions are very important to administrators
to determine wether a package is (or isn't) useful for them and are
used by package frontends in order to implement keyword-based searchs
(samples include command line tools such as 'apt-cache search X'

If you need help to provide a proper description for your package you
are advised to digest the README/manpages/HTML files provided by the package
or, as a last resort, request help at the debian-devel mailing list.

If this package is being generated from a single source package and 
you already provide a full description in your control file for the
main package, you might want to use it automatically in sub-packages. If this
is the case consider using ${description}, and debian/substvars. 

This report has been automatically generated and the main reason is that
the package has an extended description which is only one line long.
