Dear Martijn,

I focused on providing new translations for stable for some time.
There is the (real) possibility that a translation is indirectly
already done. The scenario is package with paragraphs reused in
other descriptions - the other packages already provided
translated paragraphs, but there was no commit.

An example is denyhosts (1). It is translated to Italian, Ukrainian
and German, but only the first one is marked. (The example is for
Another case is the use of common boilerplate like "This package
contains the shared library."

It would be nice to implement a cron job looking for
" descriptions
  where (( number_of_translated_paragraphs is equal to
           number_of_paragrahs ) AND
         ( description_not_marked_as_translated )) ".

Kind regards,
