I don't think localized summaries and descriptions are applicable in
distributions like Fedora, where packages are maintained by individuals.
IMO, making localized summaries/descrs. helpful would require a
multilingal team of translators/packagers, whose sole task it would have
to be to add translations for a predefined set of languages to maintain
That said, I don't consider random packagers adding random translations
to packages to be useful and to cause more problems than they solve.
