Right now it appears that use_descriptions only works for directories.
Adding a Description column to files would make them very wide, although
there's nothing preventing us from doing it. Displaying the
descriptions on the file page is a decent idea. The descriptions file
would have to be loaded for each page, so making it large would have an
adverse effect on interactivity.
If you are having problems getting use_descriptions to work with
directories, be sure you add the descriptions file to
CVSROOT/checkoutlist as documented in section 9 of the INSTALL file.
