Lintian Reports

W description-synopsis-starts-with-article

All reports of description-synopsis-starts-with-article for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The first line of the "Description:" should omit any initial indefinite or definite article: "a", "an", or "the". A good heuristic is that it should be possible to substitute the package name and synopsis into this formula:

The package name provides {a,an,the,some} synopsis.

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

Severity: minor, Certainty: certain

Check: description, Type: binary, udeb

Emitted (non-overridden): 180, overridden: 9, total: 189

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
