W malformed-prompt-in-templates

All reports of malformed-prompt-in-templates for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The short description of a select, multiselect, string and password debconf template is a prompt and not a title. Avoid question style prompts ("IP Address?") in favour of "opened" prompts ("IP address:"). The use of colons is recommended.

If this template is only used internally by the package and not displayed to the user, put "for internal use" in the short description.

Refer to Debian Developer's Reference section (Description field) for details.
