Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I description-synopsis-might-not-be-phrased-properly

The package synopsis (also known as the "short" description, ie. the first line in the package's "Description:" field) either ends with a full stop "." character or starts another sentence.

This is not necessary as the synopsis does not need to be a full sentence. It is recommended that a single descriptive phrase is used instead.

Note also that the synopsis is not part of the rest of the "long" Description: field.

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section 6.2.2 (The package synopsis, or short description) for details.
