Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Not sure if the Thunderbird package is monitored for TODO keywords, so here's a separate bug report: the packages description of Thunderbird is "Thunderbird is a mail/news/RSS client. XXX Todo" (see http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/thunderbird). This also appears in the "Add/Remove Applications" dialog in Ubuntu (Hardy) itself, which make this marker visible to many users.

I think the description should not contain this TODO marker - at least remove the marker and just keep the short description.

Also, here's an extended description text that could be used instead:

Thunderbird is a lightweight mail/news/RSS client, based on the Mozilla suite. It supports different mail accounts (POP, IMAP, Gmail), has an integrated learning Spam filter, and offers easy organization of mails with tagging and virtual folders. Also, many more features can be added by installing additional extensions.

Do you think that mentions all important points?

Attached is a debdiff that resolves this issue. I don't know if this warrants an upload or not. Maybe it can be added the next time there is an upload for another reason.
