Add an explanation of the format of the packages file format

parent 0fd75582
# Note that when adding libraries to this file, you also need to add
# the library to the SUBDIRS variable in libraries/Makefile so that they
# actually get built
# The format of the lines in this file is:
# localpath (optional) tag remotepath VCS
# where
# * localpath is where to put the repository in a checked out tree,
# * remotepath is where the repository is in the central repository,
# * VCS is what version control system the repo uses,
# * the tag, is present, determines when "darcs-all get" will get the
# repo. If there is no tag then it will always get it, but if there
# is a tag then a corresponding flag must be given to darcs-all, e.g.
# if you want to get the packages with an "extralibs" or "testsuite"
# tag then you need to use "darcs-all --extra --testsuite get".
# Support for new tags must be manually added to the darcs-all script.
# Lines that start with a '#' are comments.
