T is common to all architectures and will contain some that are on some archs but not other (amd64 but not i386 in this case). > * some packages are in T and P but with different versions (libace-6.0.1); > * some packages have more versions in T than in P (eog-plugins); A package might be outdated on some archs, in this case, T should have descriptions for both versions. > I'm writing a script and I'm expecting a perfect correspondence > between Packages and Translation-en. T is a superset of P. I don't know DAK's internals so can't tell if this is always guaranteed to be, but I'd say it's a bug if there's anything in P that has no corresponding description in T.
