It will be very helpful to have description for each repository like Fisheye does on the admin page. The README.md support is very nice for code detail, but a sort description it also very helpful to locate the repository. The name of the repository sometime can not fully reflect the code store within it.
While developing a function is needed, and we remember we have that develop as junk code, but we have hundreds of Junk Code under a project "Junk Code".
It will be very useful to use the browser's search function to locate that code with description.
