Bug#410202: klipper: improve package description?

Package: klipper
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-5
Severity: minor

The first part of the long package description is clumsy English, and a
little bit wrong:

  "klipper provides several additional features of the traditional
   clipboard functionality [...]"

(wrong because, if they are features *of*, they can't be *additional*.  It
currently sounds as if klipper is implementing an improved subset of the
'traditional' clipboard standard, whatever that is.)

A minimum correction might be:

  "klipper provides features beyond traditional clipboard functionality,
   like [...]"

  "klipper provides traditional clipboard functionality plus additional
   features, like [...]"

Mm, still a bit bureaucratic.  I would recommend something more like this:

  "klipper provides standard clipboard functions (cut and paste, history
   saving) plus additional features, like [...]"

I think one of the coolest features is "smooth integration with X" (the
option to synchronise with X clipboard and X selection); if you agree, then
you might even add that to the list of features, right after 'like'.  If
someone (without KDE) is looking around for a better clipboard than they've
got, and reading the package descriptions, then it might be a factor.

Thanks anyway for a nice package.
