I thought we had a policy that the synopsis field must not

However running

Or have I   misunderstood something?
It's a minor issue. I think that making many small changes throughout
the master branch will be too disruptive for what is a relatively minor
style issue.
This is true even though changing a description doesn't trigger a rebuild?

If the change is made, I'd prefer it on core-updates. Merging master
into core-updates and vice versa already requires somebody to resolve a
lot of merge conflicts. I'd rather not add to that burden.
Do you have any recommendations for changing our practices to ease this issue?
