Quoting the code (gstreamer/gst/gstinfo.c):
/* FIXME: add descriptions here */
If anybody knows what a category does, he's free to add a description there.
OTOH I wanted to get rid of the debugging categories in a central place and
have each file have their own debugging categories in the long run, because
this results in much saner categories. It makes no sense if code from 10
different files clobers your categories...
I've been doing this in some places in the core already.
