Package's descriptions translated do Portuguese not showing in apptitude or synaptic


The package's descriptions translated in ddtss for pt are not showing on the 
package managers like synaptic and apptitude, and that's because apt is still 
looking for translation pt_PT instead of pt.

this is a portion of my apt-get update output:

there is no Translation-pt_PT                                                                                                                                                                  
file in the repositories, just Translation-pt

as far i've been told, this bug is allready reported, but this situation has 
been draging for too long, and a correction on apt's behavior will only correct 
the incoming releases of Debian, not the ones allready released.

a link (symbolic?) in the repositories pointing Translation-pt_PT to 
Translation-pt would just not be a temporary correction to this situation, it 
would be a solution even to old releases like Lenny and (maybe) Sarge.

i would apreciate if someone would contact somebody responsable to create such a 
link in the main package repository so it would be copied to all the mirrors 
around the world, or at least point me to the person i must contact to ask for 

Thanks a lot
