Bug#439583: pyzor: Various remarks about the package's description

Package: pyzor
Severity: minor

This package's descriptions mention things like 
 "I decided to implement Pyzor with a new protocol and release the
 entire system as software libre"
This does not sound very well for a package description, mostly because this
is more the upstream author statement rather than the packager's one (even
if upstream==maintainer). The use of first person in user interaction should
anyway be discouraged.

I also advise against the use of "software libre" which is more Span(gl)ish than
English. The correct term should be "Free Software" (capitalized or not).

Anyway, the explanations about pyzor being FLOSS while Razor isn't probably
do not pertain to the package's description which should focus on what the
software is meant for (which the rest of the package description does pretty
well, indeed).
