Well, looking back at the packages that I've created and send-pr'ed, it 
seems that I have included quite good descriptions of the software in 
question. Although I have to admit that the updates I've sent for 
already existing packages dosn't really contain much of a description of 
the software. I'll try to do better there next time.

Anyway, it seems most people think that pkgsrc-wip is the way to go with 
new packages, and I will give that a try. However, packages that are 
already in pkgsrc, how should those be handled? Still through pr's? Or 
by creating a new entry in wip ?
