I noticed that some languages like Spanish, German and French already
had their desc, summary and pirut merged. Ankit, thanks for fixing it!

Milos and Marek have pointed out a good question too.
Looking at this merged desc and summay, we can see that there are about
8.000 entries from each one. Maybe it is time to reflect if it is viable
to translate these modules. I believe it is important to translated the
summaries of the packages on the DVD set, in order to use them with
anaconda. Anyway, those 16.000+ entries look too much for any
translation team.
