Yes, I know that, but I'm talking about something different. When you
visit http://packages.debian.org and search for some package, let's
say mutt http://packages.debian.org/testing/mail/mutt, the description
was localized on the *web page*.
I don't know about the programming logic behind the page, but I guess
it was not tied to APT back then? Therefore it could work even now
without the need for patched apt?
