RPM description out of date

Description of problem:
The RPM summary and description should be updated from gaim.spec in
the upstream package. The current summary and description are
misleading as they only state that gaim is a clone of AOL Instant
Messenger. In reality gaim is now a multiprotocol IM client.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I concur. Please update the description before the next FC1 update.
Here is a reminder.
So what should it say, do you think?
The %description from upstream would be a big improvement:
Gaim allows you to talk to anyone using a variety of messaging
protocols, including AIM (Oscar and TOC), ICQ, IRC, Yahoo!,
MSN Messenger, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, Napster, and Zephyr. These
protocols are implemented using a modular, easy to use design.
To use a protocol, just add an account using the account editor.
Gaim supports many common features of other clients, as well as many
unique features, such as perl scripting, TCL scripting and C plugins.
Gaim is NOT affiliated with or endorsed by America Online, Inc.,
Microsoft Corporation, Yahoo! Inc., or ICQ Inc.
What about for the summary?
Summary: A Gtk+ based multiprotocol instant messaging client
This is also from the upstream spec file that is available here:
Thank you, this is being checked into rawhide now.
