Version is 0.1... the package description could mention that the
software is an early release (alpha/experimental), to avoid deception
(and encourage feed-back).

> Description : Crossplatform logic analyzer and protocol decoder software

Some suggestions to improve the description:

> software

This paragraph applies to the whole Debian archive, so it could be
dropped.

> that supports various logic analyzer hardware products.
So, the description could start with:
"sigrok is a logic analyzer and protocol decoder software..."
Then
"This is used by [whom] to help doing [what]."

> Design goals:

Those features could be written as text, rather than bullets.

> - Broad hardware support. Supports a wide variety of logic analyzers

Isn't that implicit, from the list below?

> - Cross-platform. Works on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows,

Does this really matter to Debian users?

Unless this feature is unique to this tool, it can be dropped.

(A list is fine here.)
