I tested it again(to make a .deb-file with quickly) and I have the same
problem as described in my first mail - see below: If I try to make
packages with quickly (e.g., quickly package --extras), all the files in
the ./debian - folder are overwritten. So I have no chance to make a
.deb-file with short and extended description via quickly. It is always
filled with UNKNOWN.
But on the corresponding myapps.developer-website, there is an
description - see
Some weeks ago, I developed an other software, where this description
from the website was also taken for the Ubuntu Software Center. If this
description will not be taken, I see no sense to fill out the
description fields on the website.

The reset of change-requests are affecting also the debian-folder in my
project. But I send you the files, you wanted to have changed - The
first file is the "control"-file. It contains a copy of the description
from the myapps.developer-website.
The second file is the "copyright"-file. This file is also automatically
generated with quickly. I have never touched this file before, until
now, with your desired changes.
The "</property>"-tag is now removed and the format specification seems
now valid. I don't know for what this file is, but I found this
debian-bug through google-search: and I changed
the address like in the text of this bug-description, which should work
now. I think this is also a quickly-problem.

It would be better and easier for me to communicate through the
feedback-field in the review history of my app ( ). The
status of my app is "Review in progress" which seems OK for me?!

Please contact me, If i did something wrong, but for me, all seems OK.

Kindest regards,
Marian Lux
