The short description should not include the package name, maybe
something like:
"screen saver replaying games of Go"

> Replays historical games of go (aka wei-chi and baduk) on the screen.

The long description could/should also mention:
- that it's a screen-saver.
- that it is "Designed to work with xscreensaver and Gnome."
- which "historical games of go" are replayed? (the game played
using cgoban, right?)

I haven't mentioned the name of the program, just the object on the screen.
But i agree to use your proposed short description.

If this is mentioned in the short description?

I don't think it should be linked with Gnome somehow. Xscreensaver is almost
standard part of every usual desktop installation, at least for Gnome/KDE,
and it is in Required.

Well, no. Actually the original source tarball is consisting of some set of
historic games which can be easily extended/replaced by user.

The short description is like the subject of an email.
see developper-reference[1].

I suppose it should only mention Gnome if it actually uses Gnome libs,
or if integrates with gnome properly. (My suggestion was based on my
understanding of upstream's website).

xscreensaver is not part of Lenny/Gnome desktop. I would file a bug if
Squeeze/Gnome were recommending xscreensaver.

Anyway, it doesn't matter to mention xscreensaver in the description,
the package will depend on it, isn't it?

Even though this is possible, I suppose that very few users will do it,
so it isn't the main feature.

So, maybe something like:
"This is a screen saver that replays some games of go (aka wei-chi and
baduk). The pre-recorded games shipped in the packages were recorded
during various tournaments"
(please review this description carefully, especially the statement in
the second sentence).

Feel free to improve/rewrite my suggestions.
