What about simply listing the package names, without their 
description ...

Like this one:

This package includes the following CTAN packages: 

AkkTeX, ESIEEcv, HA-prosper, Tabbing, a0poster, ....


... You could add the description somewhere else, lets say in a file in
the package and give a hint to that file in the package description.
Or at http://www.tug.org/texlive/ and add that URL to the package
