The bodhi-client package could really use a real description:

    Description: Client tools for interacting with bodhi

What is Bodhi?  What does the client allow a user to do with Bodhi?  
That's what a Description needs.  The current Description acts as a 
warning that one shouldn't look at or install the package, as it is 
only for some special use.

The bodhi-client man page has the same issues.  From its list of 
options I conclude that indeed bodhi-client is not for use by mere 
mortal users such as me.  For one thing, I think I'd need a Bodhi 
account.  If all this is not true, then there are severe deficiencies 
in the documentation.
