I would prefer to have this in some metadata file and query the OCS server for 
more up to date description or new translations, for the following reasons :
- full text searching in descriptions (like apt-xapian-index does currently 
for packages).
- having only the name and a one-liner when offline is not great :)

But I'm open to other solutions too, especially if they make contributing 
translations easier.
