It seems unlikely that the cases where there are missing descriptions
are CTAN's fault... the text I suggested was usually based on the
first hit Google gave me, which tended to be either from upstream or
another distro's version.  But I'm bound to have got completely the
wrong end of the stick somewhere or other (e.g.: is "roex" really for
ROEX auditory filters?), so leaving them unchanged would certainly be
JBR	with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
	sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
