I am inclined to agree.

Package description has been truncated as to your suggestions.

As for the tools packages, did your "extra" refer to having them
packaged separately or packaged at all?

avoid duplicating efforts.

git repo and .dsc have been updated with the changes (with one or two
other minor fixes).
