Small local or third-party repositories have almost no infrastructure,
they manage bunches of rpm and nothing else, so if translations are
not embedded in the packages themselves (in the spec of in a detached
file inside the srpm) they get lost.

You'll note that Fedora is no different, we do not require a working
yum repo for new package submissions, just a srpm somewhere on the net
