The problem is that currently if we want to translate the description, then

we have to modify the SPEC of the RPM, which can only be done with  

Like the previous messages, we have 2 methods to choose:

1 .po files for 1 package


1 .po files for multiple packages

The first one would cause many .po files to maintain, while the other

cause the maintainence hard( too complicate).
I think maybe a more aggresive way is better:

Make the detailed description available only for programs, not packages.

Currently the RPMDRAKE is packages based, which is hard for newbies to find

programs they need and the amount of the description need to maintain also  

everyone off.

  The "Programs with GUI" option is the first step, but I think we should  
step further,

let people install programs, not packages. Therefore, we can ease both the  

of maintain descriptions and installation harsh.
