Package: openrc
Version: 0.12.4+20131230-9
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

There are cut-and-paste errors in some of the package descriptions:

>  Originally written as Originally written as a Gentoo project, OpenRC is 100%
And librc1-dev lacks a final "what this package provides" paragraph.

It also seems to me that the description doesn't capture the reasons a
user might want to install OpenRC rather than the default (how many
Debian users are going to want it *because* it's compatible with
Gentoo init scripts?).  I won't press the issue because I'm scared
someone will ask me to come up with an accurate and objective
one-liner version of https://wiki.debian.org/Debate/initsystem/openrc.
It would probably need revising before Jessie releases anyway.
JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
