I pear-package-not-using-substvar

The package is a PEAR package but its control file doesn't have ${phppear:summary} or ${phppear:description} in its description fields.

Those substitution variables should only be used if the description included in PEAR package is of sufficient quality and respect Debian packaging best practices.

Refer to https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/best-pkging-practices.html#bpp-desc-basics for details.
