Package: pentobi
Version: 1.1-1+b1
Severity: minor

Hello Debian Games Team,

The longtitle in the Debian menu file could be improved.
First the trailing dot should be removed.
Secondly, the longtitle is supposed to stand by itself,
so it is usually better to arrange for it to start by the
program name, so I would suggest:

 longtitle="Pentobi: clone of the strategy board game Blokus"

The current file /usr/share/menu/pentobi reads
 longtitle="clone of the strategy board game Blokus." \
 hints="Blokus,board,games" \

(This was reported to me by Chris Leick.)
