It looks like you copied this in here, but didn't remove it from the
other location.

I think we need to have it in one place only if at all possible, or we
will encounter the situation where one version gets updated and the
other does not. Doxygen correctly pulls it from either location (see
alpm_initialize, etc.), but it is definitely nice to have in the
header, so let's kill it from be_package.c in this case.

We will come across it moving on, but we should also pick a format we
plan to follow, as I've seen several:
1) Put first line on /** line, everything else follows after a
newline. This is the most compact.
2) Same, but newline and empty line after first line.
3) Use @brief, then a empty line, then remaining text. Things also
seem to have spaces between every part (brief, summary, params).
4) Compact but using @brief.

I don't care- as I said, I'm letting you call the shots, but we should
try and pick one and stick with it and eventually retrofit everything
to work this way.

If you're going to stop documenting the next few, I'd at least add a
newline here so it doesn't look like you're documenting the whole
group.

or modified in any way unless otherwise documented.

I say this because you should stick the above requiredby function in
this group, and document that the contents MUST be freed by the caller
as it is computed, not "gotten". (A list of strings apparently...not
sure why it isn't pmpkg_t).

Relisting the non-list return type here is a bit silly as that ends up
in any doxygen output I've seen anyway.

This one is actually a mess.

The strings are formatted as such:
filename<tab char>md5sum

Where md5sum is the checksum of the stock file out of the package. Ew.

I vote for compactness (at least in .h files). So I'd say my preferred
formatting is

/** @brief Some description.
*
* @params param a parameter.
* @return the result
*/

and when the description is verbose (like for the description of the
confusing return types between depends, optdepends, replaces...)


/** @brief Some description.
*
* A verbose explanation.
*
* @params param a parameter.
* @return the result
*/

And either

/** The maximal number of open foobars */
static int max_open_foobars = 10;

or

/** The maximal number of open foobars
*
* This number is used when performing some action.
*
* @sa override_open_foobars(int)
*/
static int max_open_foobars = 10;

for short descriptions of non-function items.
