Just look at the statistics of the module "specspo". 
http://translate.fedoraproject.org/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...

This module is really huge, but IMHO the statistics should stay there.
The lack of translations is more visible with desc, because summary is
translatable. It will take a while but can be translated in cooperation.
Here size doesn't matter. Everything is translatable only. Here am completely agree with Ankit.
Plz tell me whether this module is useful to "End User" or not?

If it is not useful then why I have to put my effort into it.

The Brazilian Portuguese Team is translating the summary module using
Google Docs, so we can have 3 people working together on separated parts
of the file.

In my opinion we should try a different approach with specspo. It could
be divided into small and categorized modules, so we would be able to
define our priorities. For instance, a module only with the description
of packages from the DVD set and other module with the ones left.
