Quoting Daniel Kahn Gillmor (dkg at fifthhorseman.net):
> FontForge is a font editor for PS, TrueType and OpenType fonts.
> It is also a font format converter, and can convert among PostScript

> OpenType (Type2), CID-keyed, SVG, CFF and multiple-master fonts.
> This package contains the runtime library.
> Gerfried, can you confirm that this would be acceptable?
The first sentence could then become the package synopsis.
That would give:
Description: font editor for PS, TrueType and OpenType fonts - runtime library
Besides being a font editor, FontForge is also also a font format
converter, and can convert among PostScript (ASCII & binary Type 1,
some Type 3s, some Type 0s), TrueType, and OpenType (Type2),
CID-keyed, SVG, CFF and multiple-master fonts.
This package contains the runtime library.
As you see, the synopsis, then becomes "$SUITE - $ELEMENT" with $SUITE
being common to all binary packages and $ELEMENT being specific to
Similarly, the first paragraph is a boilerplate that's used in all
binary packages, and the last paragraph gives information specific to
each binary package.
This is the preferred system that's often proposed in reviews by
debian-l10n-english when we work on packages' descriptions.
