7 Cool.

13 The descriptions will likely show up on packages.g.o at some point (once
14 Marduk gets around to it :) ). As for other stuff, I'm not aware of any
15 existing tool that plays around with metadata.xml (other than herdstat).
16 I could make one (to replace my nasty ewhoistoblame hack) if there's
17 interest, but if I did it it'd be done in ruby...
