It would be nice if the description would contain information why the
software was forked, i.e. what are the differences between those two?

Uh, no, that's not a good long description. You need to describe the
package for the potential user.

The description is not for the package itself, its just a description for this
ITP. (therefore "packaging will be almost the same.") The full long description
will be the same as gimmie + the reasons that led to the fork.
