merged repository missing Translations

The `Packages` files in the merged repository reference packages copied from Debian; as in Debian, their long `Description` isn't included, only `Description-md5` attributes. These would reference the corresponding description in a `Translation` file, but those files are not available on packages.devuan.org. Thus, `apt-cache show` doesn't show package descriptions for Devuan packages.

Workaround with recent `apt`:

```
deb [targets=Translations] http://httpredir.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free
```

in sources.list (fetches Translation files from Debian mirrors).

I think the correct solution would be to provide the translations on Devuan servers.
