Be aware that most upstream package descriptions are not written to
conform with Debian package guidelines. You need to explain the role
of this package for a Debian audience.
A genfun is a regular function object with overridden function
call/dispatch behavior.genfun is a _javascript_ library that lets
you define generic functions: regular-seeming functions that can be
invoked just like any other function, but that automatically dispatch
methods based on the combination of arguments passed to it when it's
called, also known as multiple dispatch.

This package is a dependency of npm, Node.js package manager.
Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.

I plan to join _javascript_ packaging team. Pirate Praveen has agreed to sponsor this package.
