I just completed the translation of a few Hamradio packages and, wow, the hamradio jargon they use is about as intelligible as Sanskrit to me...:-). It even sometimes takes ages before one can *understand* that the package deals with hamradio. So, just like many other people said in this thread, please try thinking about the user who just comes on a given package description because (s)he "apt-cache search"ed some random words....:) Package descriptions are sometimes not considered as important as they are.
