Descriptions *are* difficult, especially for tools you are unfamiliar
with.  It does not help that upstream descriptions are often targeting a
highly specialized demographic, whereas we are catering for a much wider
audience.  I try to make them generic, and include some information
about why the user would want this package/how it's used.

Occasionally I'll browse the packages at for inspiration.
(or look at Debians description, but don't tell anyone)

Writing the code is comparatively easy :-)
