Default Bug#489824: ITP: pllua -- PL/Lua is an implementation of Lua as a loadable procedural language for PostgreSQL

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Fernando Ike de Oliveira <fike@midstorm.org>


* Package name : pllua
Version : 0.8.1
Upstream Author : Luis Carvalho <lexcarvalho@gmail.com>
* URL : http://pllua.projects.postgresql.org/
* License : MIT/X
Programming Lang: C, Lua
Description : PL/Lua is an implementation of Lua as a loadable procedural language for PostgreSQL

PL/Lua is an implementation of Lua as a loadable procedural language for
PostgreSQL: with PL/Lua you can use PostgreSQL functions and triggers
written in the Lua programming language.
.
It brings the power and simplicity of Lua to PostgreSQL, including:
small memory footprint, simple syntax, lexical scoping, functions as
first-class values, and coroutines for non-preemptive threading.

The Short Description is way too long.

The similar Ruby deb-src package name is postgresql-plruby.

The package name should match that of other procedural-language
extensions for PostgreSQL:

postgresql-plperl
postgresql-plpython
postgresql-plruby
postgresql-pltcl

It also goes against the recommendations in the Best Packaging
Practices section of the Developer's Reference
<URL:http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ch-best-pkging-practices#s-bpp-pkg-synopsis>.

On that basis, a better synopsis would be:

PL/Lua procedural language for PostgreSQL

which would also match that of existing procedural-language packages.

Sure, if it would make sense for it to be capitalised that way in an
appositive clause. PL is an acronym used within the PostgreSQL project
for "procedural language (that can be dynamically loaded)".

The test to apply is: does the synopsis make sense if it is put into
the following template:

<packagename> is {the,a,an} <synopsis>
