Description "FeRD" (Frank Dana) 2014-01-19 05:26:29 UTC
This is admittedly trivial in the grand scheme, but I'm on something of a one-person crusade to see if yum package metadata can be made more directly enlightening/informative.

The current package information for freealut contains the following:

Summary     : Implementation of OpenAL's ALUT standard
Description : freealut is a free implementation of OpenAL's ALUT standard. See
            : the file AUTHORS for the people involved.

Summary     : Development files for freealut
Description : Development headers and libraries needed for freealut development

For the edification of those who aren't familiar with OpenAL and the ALUT (or the analogues in OpenGL), I'd like to propose the following (or similar) expanded details, based in part on the freeglut metadata:

Summary     : Implementation of OpenAL's Audio library Utility Toolkit
Description : freealut is a free implementation of the OpenAL ALUT (Audio
            : Library Utility Toolkit) library with an OSI approved free 
            : software license. See the file AUTHORS for the people involved.
            : The ALUT provides convenience functions useful for rendering
            : multichannel three dimensional positional audio with OpenAL.

Summary     : Development files for the free Audio library Utility Toolkit
Description : Development headers and libraries for programs using freealut,
            : an implementation of OpenAL's ALUT (Audio Library Utility
            : Toolkit) for rendering multichannel 3D positional audio.
