apt-0.5.15lorg2-alt84 -> sisyphus:

 Fri Jun 02 2023 Ivan Zakharyaschev <imz@altlinux> 0.5.15lorg2-alt84
 - Fixed the display of descriptions in aptitude and packagekit (by making
   the format closer to Debian's):
   + Fixed the display of the first line, which was not shown in packagekit.
   + Fixed the regression (from 0.5.15lorg2-alt72) in the display of
     all but the first lines (in aptitude and packagekit). (ALT#40826)
   + This has also made packagekit show translated descriptions. (ALT#46251)
   + As a result, there is a cosmetic regression in synaptic: extra blanks.
 - Increased the buf for reading to 32k for effectiveness in methods:
   gzip (and other compression types), rsh, ftp.
 - Avoid compilation errors with GCC 13 (thx Alexey Sheplyakov). (ALT#46105)
