Packaging Guidelines for Describing Description Field
[-- a proposal for a standard method --]
This page is being developed towards a possible standard method for the Description field in a package description. This proposed guideline will lend uniformity across package sets and packages as to what is displayed to the user.
MULTI-PACKAGE SETS: A single application name needs to be used across the whole set. This preferably should be what is shown in the application name. Any sub-package modules should try and follow a similiar method. The end result should be a uniform Description field across the set.
- (eg. aspell-en: English dictionary for GNU ASpell; aspell-da Danish dictionary for GNU Aspell [not as it is now])
