Re: Packages long description missing.

Hash: SHA1

I confirm, also with a new Wheezy 7.1 installation the complete
description (apt-cache show) of a package is missing if I use the
amd64 iso images set mounted in loop with a directory as a mount-point
for each image (dvd-1,dvd-2,dvd-3,etc...) using "file" URI in
sources.list to specify archives.
I notice that if I copy Translation-en file from dvd iso image to
/var/lib/apt/lists (renamed opportunely) directory translations are shown:

# cd /var/lib/apt/lists
/var/lib/apt/lists# cp
/var/lib/apt/lists# gunzip $_
/var/lib/apt/lists# apt-cache show less
Package: less
Version: 444-4
Installed-Size: 286
Maintainer: Anibal Monsalve Salazar <anibal@debian.org>
Architecture: amd64
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.11), libtinfo5, debianutils (>= 1.8)
Description-en: pager program similar to more
 This package provides "less", a file pager (that is, a memory-efficient
 utility for displaying text one screenful at a time). Less has many
 more features than the basic pager "more". As part of the GNU project,
 it is widely regarded as the standard pager on UNIX-derived systems.
 Also provided are "lessecho", a simple utility for ensuring arguments
 with spaces are correctly quoted; "lesskey", a tool for modifying the
 standard (vi-like) keybindings; and "lesspipe", a filter for specific
 types of input, such as .doc or .txt.gz files.

Tag: implemented-in::c, interface::text-mode, role::program,
 uitoolkit::ncurses, use::viewing, works-with::text
Section: text
Priority: standard
Filename: pool/main/l/less/less_444-4_amd64.deb
Size: 134872

It works until "aptitude update" command is run again, because it will
delete the file I copied. How should I do to get "aptitude update"
merges all main and contrib (of the 10 dvd iso mounted in loop)
Translation-en files into /var/lib/apt/lists directory? Please help I
can't figure out how it happens.
Thank in advance, regards.
