Just look at the statistics of the module "specspo". Do you see any 
language completed more than even 50%? No...

The reason is obvious, it's too huge to translate and another reason 
would be I think, it's not really important for the "end users" too, who 
actually use "Localized Desktops". For them package summary or 
description doesn't make much difference as they understand the use of 
packages through help files/manuals only. They don't go by RPM specs - 
summary or descriptions I think. So, most of the language coordinators 
are not translating this package.

So, I would like it to be removed from the *individual language 
statistics page only*, Not from the "individual module translation 
statistics page".

It will help me to track the progress of translation of my language, for 
the important/core packages only.

Still, I am not so keen on getting this removed from the statistics 
page, but thought may be other language coordinators too thinking the 
same thing, so expressed my idea.

Thread is open for the inputs I think...
