lint: confusing phrasing of warning 47 #3738

By mistake I confused synopsis (short description) and description (long description), and wrote an opam file which only contained a description field (while it should have been synopsis). opam lint gave me the following warning:

warning 47: Synopsis should start with a capital and not end with a dot

which is fairly confusing, since there was no synopsis! It took me some time to find what the real issue was.

An heritage from opam1.2, the descr file composition (1st line synopsis, rest description), opam2 description field have the same syntax.
Thanks for reporting.
