  Description     : secure fully decentralized instant messaging, chat and email client
 Goldbug is a fully decentralized peer-to-peer or friend-to-friend Instant Messenger
 that aims to provide secure communications by using multi-encryption (RSA keys, SSL
 and end-to-end encryption) and the Echo Protocol (EMPP = Echoed Messaging and Presence
 Protocol) to avoid tracking.
 .
 Random fake messages can be sent as well from time to time to avoid tracking. Goldbug
 prevents data retention for the same reasons and provides Web-of-Trust (WoT) Deniability.
 .
 It also offers decentralized and encrypted email and decentralized public E*IRC Chat for
 groups of friends to chat privately. Signatures are available for authentication of chat
 and emails.

I'm warry of including "secure" in the package description.
Without a detailed threat model, this word can create false
impressions of security.
