Dear Multimedia Maintainers,
thank you for maintaining rev-plugins.
I'm sorry that to me the package description seems problematic. And I'm
that it's "just a library" that gets pulled in. The average user should not
need the description to decide whether he needs it …
- It uses uncommon (FP) and misspelled abbreviations (LADSPA = Linux Audio
Developer's Simple Plugin API). (1)
- There are "plugins" in the package name, but there is just one
But that seems to originate from upstream. (2)
- For people who don't know gverb the comparison is quite useless.
I would be more comfortable with something like:
Description: reverb LADSPA plugin
This reverb features two inputs for stereo operation,
and some code to prevent floating point denormalisation.
