Package: dia
Version: 0.96.1-4
Severity: normal

Hello Debian Dia Team,

The file /usr/share/menu/dia reads
?package(dia): \
   needs="X11" \
   section="Applications/Graphics" \
   hints="Vector" \
   command="/usr/bin/dia-normal" \
   icon="/usr/share/pixmaps/dia_menu.xpm" \
   title="Dia" \
   longtitle="Draw diagrams" \
   description="Dia can be used to draw different kind of diagrams. \
     There is support for UML static structure diagrams \
     (class diagrams), Entity-Relationship diagrams and \
     Network diagrams. Diagrams can be exported to postscript."

The longtitle must stand by itself without the title. It is generally a
good idea that it contains the software name preferably at the start.
"Draw diagrams" is too generic.
Maybe "Dia diagram drawer".

Thanks to have migrated to the new menu structure[1]. Howver dia rather
belong in Applications/Engineering.
