[opensuse-packaging] Package Descriptions

By now, package descriptions are rather bewildered, and there is doubt
about there formatting. Time ago, they were maintained in a separate
database (PDB) and exported for yast and .spec files as needed.

Now, we parse the .spec files to create something suitable for yast.
Because many a lot \n\n (AKA empty lines) are gone, paragraphs and list
items (= lines starting with "* ") run into one paragraph.

How do we want to proceed with the package description formatting?
