Amarok description in Add/Remove programs is silly

Bug #46526 reported by Matthew Paul Thomas on 2006-05-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
amarok (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Choose "Add/Remove..."
2. In the Add/Remove Applications window, Click "Sound and Video".

What you see:
    Uncle Rodney says, "10/10, amaroK is seriously super!"

What you should see:
    Something meaningful.

This might be a mix-up with the full description, which begins "versatile and easy to use audio player for KDE amaroK tries to be a little different, providing a simple drag and drop interface that really makes playlist handling easy." That seems to be two sentences jumbled together, and maybe the first was supposed to be where Uncle Rodney's quote is. (And I don't know how having a "simple drag and drop interface" is "a little different" from every other audio player that does playlists, but I guess that's a separate issue.)

This is the description provided by the amarok authors in the desktop file, which probably sounded like a fun idea to them at the time...

The description for amarok in edgy still hasn't changed.

Brandon, how can we follow up with upstream (you said they were notified) to work towards getting the message changed?
