Dear Peter,

I have changed the package description in our Subversion repository according
to your suggestion. Our packages pages will be refreshed the next time the
package is updated. For the name of the package itself, as you guessed,
changing its name is more problematic.

The "External Ressources" section of the sidebar of packages.d.o and
packages.u.c actually only contains homepages for the moment and I do not know
a way to add other links. But I have left a TODO comment for the day it will
become possible.

By the way, do you think it would be useful to package BioSQL?

Thanks a lot for your feedback !
