Bug Description

Ubuntu 13.04, unity-webapps-service 2.5.0~daily13.03.18-0ubuntu1

I've packaged my webapp for http://www.rememberthemilk.com/. It is available through one of configured repositories.
I'm expecting ubuntu-webapps-update-index to update available webapps database, but it fails to do it:

$ /usr/bin/ubuntu-webapps-update-index
** Message: Investigating webapp: unity-webapps-rmilk

** (process:7279): WARNING **: Failed to parse metadata line ( Remember The Milk Webapp for Unity
), skipping package

This happens because package description field is multi-line:
