Description (mandatory)

Quick Info

The Description field describes the package. It really includes 2 strings: the short description (first line, up to 70 characters) and a long description (following lines.) The long description is optional. The short description is mandatory.

The description should be detailed enough for people to understand what the package is about. It is otherwise a free form field.

The long description supports empty lines, these must be written as one space and one period and nothing else. There is an example:

Description: The short description of the package.
 The package long description paragraph 1.
 This package long description paragraph 2.

Also wpkg forbids the use of tabs (horizontal and vertical) in the description.
