debmirror doesn't download translations for Ubuntu repositories since quantal.

Bug Description

I'm on Ubuntu raring.

In debmirror v2.13 translation downloading was changed from parsing i18n/Index files to using the file information from the distributions Release file. The Ubuntu repositories don't yet include the translation files in the Release files.

As a result the translated Package description won't be mirrored since quantal (1:2.14ubuntu1), which is a real nuisance if you use a local mirror.

The complete i18n/Index parsing code was dropped in the following Git commit:

SHA: 2437646a9d8478b3a05aeaffdbcfd71fca99bf5f
Subject: Fix downloading of translation files for sections contrib and non-free.

The attached patch is against debmirror 1:2.14ubuntu1.
