I've seen this a several times lately (both explicitly, as here, and
in response to suggestions), and I'd like to speak against it: One of
key points of the ITP is to allow others to correct and/or improve the
descriptions before initial package upload and before others waste time
translating them. Is it really asking too much that a maintainer spend
10 minutes writing a actual description before posting the ITP? You're
going to have to do it eventually, why not now? Is there some sort of
fierce competition in ITPs that I'm unaware of?

    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
