Package: libcrypt-ssleay-perl
Version: 0.51-2
Severity: minor

I searched through the Packages file a bit for typos and the like - below
you find a diff of this package's description (a) showing what I think is
wrong and (b) how I suggest it to be corrected.

For some discussion that took place on debian-devel before filing this bug,
(msgid <>).

 Description: Support for https protocol in LWP
  This perl module provides support for the https protocol under LWP, so
- that a LWP::UserAgent can make https GET & HEAD & POST requests. Please
+ that an LWP::UserAgent can make https GET & HEAD & POST requests. Please
  see perldoc LWP for more information on POST requests.
  The Crypt::SSLeay package contains Net::SSL, which is automatically
  loaded by LWP::Protocol::https on https requests, and provides the
  necessary SSL glue for that module to work via these deprecated modules:
  Crypt::SSLeay::CTX, Crypt::SSLeay::Conn and Crypt::SSLeay::X509.
  Work on Crypt::SSLeay has been continued only to provide https support
  for the LWP - libwww perl libraries. If you want access to the OpenSSL
  API via perl, check out Sampo's Net::SSLeay (available in Debian as
  the libnet-ssleay-perl package).
