Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2019-01-03 09:24:47 UTC
DESCRIPTION="single-file public domain (or MIT licensed) libraries for C/C++"
This could be anything.

I suggest something like
DESCRIPTION="C/C++ libraries to read and write bitmap files"

please adjust it to what these libraries are for.
Comment 1 Mathy Vanvoorden 2019-01-03 09:28:49 UTC
The description came from Github.

It also has code for Vorbis, lexical parsing, Truetype, a text editor framework, an sprintf alternative, ... so just "bitmap files" is also not correct.
Comment 2 Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2019-01-03 12:56:16 UTC
I'd suggest 'another pointless NIH used by n packages' (usually n=1).
