I don't understand what you mean here.

The DDTP is the same. Translations are identified by their md5 hash.
Per description there is only one translation for each language, even
if it may be used in multiple packages. The Package header is there
just for human readability, it's a randomly selected package with that
description. Your code correctly ignores it.

The check for duplicate md5s? Shouldn't be necessary, there won't be
any duplicates.

Looking at the code I don't see what can go wrong, unless there is
some difference in the way the md5s are calculated. That would cause
some weird issues.

Is there a way to determine what the md5 of a description is according
to the website?
