Sometimes I really fail to see the benefit of having summary and desc
in Fedora: sure it's nice to have them localised when the user is
browsing for software, but this should really happen upstream where
the software is coming from so all distros can benefit?

Even then, getting all this metadata for all the languages across the
network and parsing it everytime you run yum/pirut is IMHO quite
wasteful and slow, so even if it's only used in anaconda and only when
installing from DVD it still seems more trouble and valuable
translator time for questionable benefit...

Just my 5 para ;)
