APT, a Command-line Wrapper
-A shorter, simpler, and slightly-saner interface to the Debian APT command-line
-apt is a single command that will automatically elevate itself with sudo if
-It consolidates all commands from apt-get and apt-cache, and a few from
-aptitude, dpkg, dpkg-query, and apt-key, etc.
-It has a much narrower focus than similar tools such as "wajig".
+A shorter, simpler, and slightly-saner interface to the
+`Debian APT <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Packaging_Tool>`_
+``apt`` may be thought of as a traffic cop
+that directs commands to the appropriate tool,
+automatically elevating itself with sudo if need-be.
+It consolidates all commands from ``apt-get`` and ``apt-cache``,
+and the most common from
+``aptitude, dpkg, dpkg-query, add-apt-repository``, and ``apt-key``, etc.
+It has a much narrower focus than "kitchen-sink" tools such as ``wajig``.
Hopefully this micro-project will make your life a tiny bit easier.
