Description of Universe repository could be better

Bug #338450 reported by Scott Kitterman on 2009-03-05
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apt-setup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Currently the default sources.list says:

## N.B. software from this repository is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED by the Ubuntu
## team. Also, please note that software in universe WILL NOT receive any
## review or updates from the Ubuntu security team.

While it's correct to say it's not commercially supported by Canonical and that the Ubuntu Security Team only provides security updates on a best effort basis with help from the community, it is not at all correct to say the repository as a whole is ENTIRELY UNSUPPORTED. Some packages in Universe are as well maintained and kept current on security fixes as Main.
