The package lynx has a similar problem: the german translation had a
typo (lync-cur instead of lynx-cur), but it was fixed since then. The
fix shows up in the Translation-de.bz2 but again not at the
website. It seems that new translations are not transferred to the
website if the original description stays the same.
So my guess is, that the script/service is only checking the value of
"Description-md5" in the Translation-de.bz2 file and not seeing any
change in the translation itself, once it's translated.
