Freshmeat, being such a large site, appears at the top for many search queries that revolve around software. Until today the description (the extract) that follows the link was a true extract of the webpage concerned.

The link is correct but the extract is not correct. If you type in the name of any other project listed on freshmeat you will see the same description.
