The extended description (the lines after the first line of the "Description:" field) is only one or two lines long. The extended description should provide a user with enough information to decide whether they want to install this package, what it contains, and how it compares to similar packages. One or two lines is normally not enough to do this.
For more information please consult:
- General guidelines for package descriptions (Section 6.2.1) in the Debian Developer's Reference
- The long description (Section 6.2.3) in the Debian Developer's Reference
