(futile cosmetic rant below, you've been warned)

I really think repeating the name of a package in its summary, or its
license for that matter, is unneeded redundancy which reduces readability
when going through lists of packages (at install time for instance). In the
above, lots have the name pre-pended (short or long), and some have useless
"The", "A" etc.

When the time comes, I'd really favor a Fedora guideline that explains what
the "name", "summary" and "description" are each meant for, and what they
should contain.

I am glad to notice though that there isn't a single trailing dot :-) D'oh,
I read too fast, there are two of them :-(
