Bug#410202: klipper: improve package description?
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,
"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.
