It doesn't make sense to me either. I think it's a bug. I have some 
patches to and that I'll bring up on the 
developer list. Description currently goes through ALL targets and 
appends any <description> elements to the Project description. It should 
only append any <description> elements in the implicit target. I have a 
patch for that. I also have a patch for Target that will use any child 
<description> elements as the target description, which is really nice 
for documentation of the purpose of a target.
