Add descriptor files to repositories

Erik Schnetter created an issue

Put, into each repository, a small file that describes the repository content to GetComponents: - list of thorns - where the thorns are in the repository's directory structure - etc.?

This information then does not need to be repeated in thorn lists.

    I mean that these files should be in repositories, so that one can easily see what thorns are in the repositories.

    Do you mean you would like to only specify within a thornlist 'Thorn X from arrangement list Y (which would mean a URL to a thornlist)' and within that arrangement list you would get the remaining information (like how to actually get to the thorns)?

    I mean e.g. the definition of REPO_PATH. I'm not sure about arrangements -- I'm not sure whether a repository should specify what the contained thorns' arrangement names are. This makes sense for large repositories, but not for small repositories.
