Misleading repository description

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Description field should probably mention 'maemo' instead of 'Debian Nokia
Contents of the file as of this moment:
Date: Thu Nov 22 15:52:47 EET 2007
Architectures: armel i386 all
Components: free non-free extras
Description: Debian Nokia repository
EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
You might want to re-evaluate the contents of 'Codename' and 'Suite' as well.
At the moment there is a small inconsistency:
- the sources.list that SDK is installed with will use 'chinook' as the source.
- the Release file however points to 'maemo4.0'
- doing a coherent mirror will lead to the funny situation of having:

The above probably requires some thought to fix properly. Feel free to separate
this issue into a separate bug from the description field.
Just an example, the following fields are from Feisty Release:

It's better. Although no reason why one couldn't use spaces :-) :
"maemo 4.0.1". Also IMHO there's no reason to have the word repository in
there, since it's pretty self-evident.
If you feel particularly lazy, the current form is ok to me. Feel free to do a
FIX and I'll confirm.
Ok, then I am feeling particularly lazy. :) Actually, the Release files are
generated by the queue manager we are using to maintain the repositories. If
the current format is acceptable for you, then I would rather not mess with the
scripts and regenerate all the repositories and stuff. I know that this is not
a really good argument, but I would rather spend that time with fixing
