Bug#657557: Fix for #657557
*** I don't run a whole instance, I only played with a few
*** languages and a few suites, checking I could perform
*** packages → long descriptions (and translations) lookups
*** again once the patches applied, and run-parts done.
Tiny walkthrough for those patches against debian-master:
[PATCH 1/4] Download English translations files.
→ Already applied on the Debian instance according to Rhonda.
[PATCH 2/4] Add support for long descriptions in suites above squeeze.
→ Restores long descriptions, but there's a translation→package
dependency (when translations are updated) which disappears with
the next two patches.
[PATCH 3/4] Add support for --english-only to parse-translations.
[PATCH 4/4] Extract English translations before processing packages.
→ I think the commit messages really say what they do: making
processing works fine at once.
If troubles arise from applying those patches, I could be tricked
into helping to fix it up.
