Package: nagios2
Version: 2.6-2
Severity: minor

Hash: SHA1

The bullet points in the package description aren't indented by one
space (over the existing single space to indicate the continuation of
the Description field). The result is that the package description looks
screwed up in aptitude, on http://packages.debian.org/nagios2 and
probably other places like in Synaptic.

This can be fixed by adding an extra space on the start of the lines in
the bulleted list like so:

Description: A host/service/network monitoring and management system
 Nagios is a monitoring and management system for hosts, services and
 Nagios' features include:
  o  Monitoring of network services (via TCP port, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, NNTP,
     PING, etc.)
  o  Plugin interface to allow for user-developed service checks
  o  Contact notifications when problems occur and get resolved (via email,
     pager, or user-defined method)
  o  Ability to define event handlers to be run during service or host events
     (for proactive problem resolution)
  o  Web output (current status, notifications, problem history, log file, etc.)
 Nagios was written in C and is designed to be easy to understand and modify
 to fit your own needs.
 This package is the new version 2.x series of nagios, which will eventually
 replace the 1.x versions.
 Nagios is a replacement of the Netsaint project. It accepts and uses the
 previous Netsaint modules transparently.
