Package: node-abbrev
Version: 1.0.5-1
Severity: important

I was just wondering about the ITPs on d-devel, and whether those
packages should not be called nodejs-* instead of node-*, and was
seeing this package in the list first.

Both its short description and its long description are utterly
ridiculous. Since working as buildd maintainer I have seen some
weird and idiotic package short Descriptions, but this is an
order of magnitude worse.

Please scrap them and write completely new ones which describe,
in a positive way, that is, without leaning on another weird
scripting language a prospective nodejs user may not know, what
this package does.

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.   -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
