ERROR: please fix package in OpenWRT

I'm putting together an OpenWRT package for a project I'm working on and ran into a perplexing error message as I was testing my new package's Makefile:

[[email protected] backfire]$ make menuconfig

ERROR: please fix package/click/Makefile

To get a more descriptive error message, enter the following from the root directory of your OpenWRT source distribution:

TOPDIR=$PWD make -C package/ DUMP=1

Doing this let me discover that I was using a deprecated description tag inside my Makefile.
