Hi Beatrice,

Thank you for the report.

Some versions of pkg-php-tools did break the layout, rebuilding it with
the current version fixes the issue (i.e., the next upload will fix this
bug without any extra change needed).

Agreed. Maybe we should hardcode back (or patch) an improved version of
the synopsis currently extracted from upstream package.xml.

FWIW, this package is only recommended by php-horde, is not maintained
upstream anymore, and seen its last upstream update almost three years
ago. If someone familiar with Horde could investigate if this package is
still useful, that would be nice. If dropping the recommendation makes
sense, an RC bug against php-services-weather could prevent it from
getting shipped with Stretch, even before asking for its removal.
