Package: wavesurfer

[ This is an automated bug report, part of the mass bug filing discussed
  at <http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2011/02/msg00367.html>. The
  submitter is Stefano Zacchiroli, reachable at <zack@debian.org>. ]

According to lintian, wavesurfer uses its long description
to point to upstream homepage, following an old Developer's Reference
recommendation. That practice has various drawbacks, including the
inability to automatically process homepage information from
package-related services such as packages.d.o, the PTS, etc. Starting
from version 1.14.6, dpkg supports Homepage: as a regular field in
debian/control. You can check Debian Policy § 5.6.23 for more information

Please remove the deprecated pseudo header from the long description of
wavesurfer and turn it into a regular debian/control field.

In case of multiple binary packages, doing so would also allow to factor
out homepage information into the source stanza of debian/control,
instead of repeating it in each binary stanza.
