I think that you can create such longer descriptions of contributed
things in FPC wiki, [http://www.freepascal.org/wiki/]. On main page
there is a link to "Contributed Units". Just follow it, create new page,
and list there various pages describing contributed things. Then you can
create whole pages dedicated to some particular contributed things.
