[Reproducible-builds] Bug#802841: src:strip-nondeterminism: Update descriptions to better reflect broader reach

Package: src:strip-nondeterminism
Version: 0.013-1
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

The StripNondeterminism library is implemented as Perl code, but its
main target is not merely Perl programmers: it is all Debian package

The descriptions don't reflect that, though; they misleadingly give
the impression that the package is irrelevant for non-Perl packages.
The truth is that the implementation language has no bearing on tool's

Please update the pacakge metadata to give priority to the intent of
the code base: providing a set of tools for all Debian package
maintainers, regardless of implementation language.

I will provide a patch with suggested improvements.
