Description of problem:
While installing the packages Fedora Core 6 Test 3 prints the package description below the progress bar.  The use of the full stop within the package description is sparse.  For example:

The description for the package “Redhat Artwork” uses no full stop to end the description.  However; the description for Foomatic uses a full stop to end the description i.e.

Redhat Artwork: Art work for Redhat look and feel
Foomatic: Foomatic printer database.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Accept the defaults during an install for FC6 Test3.
2. While installing inspect the package descriptions.

Actual Results:
There is no standard application of the full stop punctuation mark.  Some package complete their description with a full stop, other don't.

Expected Results:
a) Apply a standard for the use of the full stop punctuation mark.  

b) If the full stop is missed the installer could append a full stop character to end of package description.

We use what's in the package header -- trying to second guess things here is the
road to madness

Thank you for the feedback, your point is taken and valid.  It a shame we can't 
apply a standard for the use of punctuation.  Any sticklers for the application 
of English punctuation and grammar will immediately spot this.  I guess the 
flaws lie within the packages rather than the installer.
