Package: multisync
Version: 0.82-8

The package description could do with explaining that 'this is an old
version that relies on the Multisync framework and uses Multisync plugins.
A newer version (package name multisync0.90), also available in Debian,
instead relies on the Opensync framework and Opensync plugins.'
As it stands you aren't told that there's a difference of
Multisync/Opensync between the multisync and multisync0.90 packages so you
have to dig deep to understand what their differences are and which to

The package description also needs to say it is a GTK graphical user
interface because multisync0.90 says it is and with multisync not doing so
it leads one to believe multisync is not a GUI when comparing one against
the other.

Also, please remove the redundant "To get all' near the end of the package

For peoples' ease of use it would be really helpful if we could have this
kind of list in the package description:

'libmultisync-plugin-all installs the following:

libmultisync-plugin-backup - Backup plugin
libmultisync-plugin-evolution - Ximian Evolution plugin
libmultisync-plugin-irmc - IrMc Mobile plugin
libmultisync-plugin-irmc-bluetooth - Adds Bluetooth support to the IrMC
libmultisync-plugin-opie - Opie plugin

The following package might also be of use:
synce-multisync-plugin - a plugin for WindowsCE devices'
