ok, I make the decision to comment out all untranslated messages. (first
I add this with a empty messages, and get some 'remove this messages'. I
hope with this comments, a merge with the package po file and the po

The ddts assume the every description has a short _and_ one extended
description. IMHO a missing extended description is a bug (comments?).

Because of this you see this "" messages...
