19 I would like to echo this. More than twice, I've looked to a web page
20 to learn a little more about a package only to find scant information,
21 or worse, a dead link.
23 I like this idea so much, that I'll offer to get it rolling. If it should
24 be decided that this will be done, I'm sure that there will be quite a
25 number
26 of previously released packages which would like a longer description added
27 to them. I'm only an engineer, not a software developer, but this is
28 something
29 I think I can handle.
