You have this feature with the mailserver to. Don't translate a
description, if you can't translate it, if you have no time, or if you
don't like it, ...

If parts already translated, the server send this parts translated to
the server. If you have add the translated source in your
sources.list, you can use the translated description (and cut and
paste from it) on a daily base.

(as example:
# this description is from: db/desc/g/gnome-card-games/0161f1c1b25d938655dbe0a3e55fa317
Description: Gnome card games - Solitaire games (FreeCell, Klondike, Spider, etc)
 Gnome is the "GNU Network Object Model Environment"
 It is a project to build a complete, user-friendly desktop based
 entirely on free software.
 FreeCell + the Aisleriot solitaire games (Camelot, Klondike, Odessa,
 Osmosis, Spider)

yes, this is a really pro.

But the translator don't see this and I have a db-api (like save_parts_to_db(),
get_desc_from_db ()). It should move this to better DataBase files
without problemes (hopefully).
