Bug#98549: Packages with diffrent language descriptions.. proposition

Package: general
Version: N/A; reported 2001-05-23
Severity: wishlist

some people on debian-polish list and I was asked about it personally
so I'm sending that proposition here.

Adding diffrent language descriptions to package info.
*.dsc files and Packages contents.

it should be rather easy from technical point of view.
It should be enough to add something like:

some info in english

Lang: PL

Lang: DE

Lang: FR

and so on in description area
and patch which will use Packages-LANG.gz

I'm suggesting also adding special tag Language: to debian/control
Then it'll be possible to extract Packages for diffrent nationality
from dselect list. For truth I rather frequently use Japanese,
Koreans, Chinese. The same for other nationalities (fonts, magazines,

I have at least people which will happily translate dsc to Polish.
