Normally translation is made on the current source text, and often in 
real time.  That is, as soon as a change is made in the text, it is 
immediately available for translation.  This process is used by 
Openoffice and Mozilla (Firefox, Seamonkey, Thunderbird), for example,
So for package description, as soon as any description (or change) is 
posted, it would be immediately available for translation, by the 
various localisation groups.
