Moin Tom!

And maybe we should introduce an international (German, French, Spanish  
etc.) description field in the control file. The package manager could ask  
the user which language he prefers. If the description in this language is  
available the packet manager uses this field, otherwise the manager uses  
the English description.
I think this is very important, because several other Linux distributions  
already offer this nice feature.
