Sounds good (without the newline though).

Hartmut, since the rest of the patch looked non controversial, and if
‘guix lint’ doesn’t complain, you can push to ‘master’ with the synopsis

The ‘license’ field may also need to be fixed: it says ‘gpl3’, which
means GPLv3-only, but the odds are that it’s in fact GPLv3-or-later,
aka. ‘gpl3+’.
