We changed the short descriptions to:

-Description: BOINC core client
+Description: core client for the BOINC distributed computing infrastructure

-Description: control and monitor utility for the BOINC core client
+Description: GUI to control and monitor the BOINC core client

-Description: BOINC platform for distributed computing (development files)
+Description: development files to build applications for BOINC projects

I hope this is good enough for DWN now and boinc-client and boinc-manager can 
be mentioned in next week's issue.
