Summary:
Descriptions for external programs and libraries

Detailed description
The oasis-db/odb admin panel allows people to add external libraries and programs which are provided by something outside of oasis-db. It would be helpful to be able to specify a description and/or provider for each of these. For example, "ocamllex:Provided by the core OCaml distribution."

Further discussion from #ocaml on IRC:

07:54 <@gildor> hcarty: I think you could state that it should be coupled with
the ability to define "virtual package"
07:54 <@gildor> hcarty: i.e. package that won't be available/listed on oasis-db
but used to gives hint to people
07:55 <@gildor> hcarty: e.g. pkg-config libraries, where we will be able to
attach various data, like a homepage and a Debian package
07:55 <@gildor> (though it will remain 2nd class citizen, i.e. not exported,
just here for information)
