The short description is like the subject of an email.

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.
