you got it ;) well i think we changed the "pretty-short" summary to 
"Cheese is a Photobooth-inspired GNOME application for taking pictures
and videos from a webcam. It also includes fancy graphical effects based
on the gstreamer-backend."

but i think we are still missing the "totally short" summary, which is
"a cheesy program to take photos and videos from your webcam"

we would love to hear some new descriptions! feel free to add a bug:
