Questions on my first package update

As this is my first update on a package I released a few years ago, I
have a couple of questions please.

I upgraded the regina-rexx package today and received warnings in the
calm email:

INFO: package 'regina-rexx': sdesc ends with '.'
INFO: package 'regina-rexx': sdesc ends with '.'
INFO: package 'libregina-devel': sdesc ends with '.'
INFO: package 'libregina': sdesc ends with '.'

The packages uploaded fine, but when I do a search for the packages via the
updated packages don't show a description whereas the initial version
did. eg:

  * libregina-devel-3.8.2-1
    <> -
    libregina-devel: An ANSI compliant Rexx Interpreter. Development
    libraries and headers. (installed binaries and support files)
  * libregina-devel-3.9.4-1
    <> -
  * libregina-3.8.2-1
    <> -
    libregina: An ANSI compliant Rexx Interpreter. Runtime libraries.
    (installed binaries and support files)
  * libregina-3.9.4-1
    <> -

Would this lack of description be due to the warnings and if so can I
rebuild and upload the packages again after removing the trailing '.'
from the SUMMARY fields in the cygport file ?

Once I sort this out I'll send out the announcment email.

Thanks, Mark
