Right - the current result looks something like http://paste.opensuse.o

Summary and Description still need to be translated (those strings
don't exist yet in the .po files)

For summary I intentionally used the same string as for the .desktop,
but seems those are not merged by msgfmt: in fact the .desktop file
brings all translations directly in git (this is something we can look
at in a next step, using the same msgfmt technique I employed now for
the .appdata and get the strings merged back into the .desktop the same

This all should make it a bit more uniform for translators AND gives us
the advantage of actually appearing translated in Software Centers.
