Where do I find the descriptions of available packages in the zubuntu repositories?
In "most" other Zaurus distros, all one needs to do is download the "Packages" file and open it in a text editor.
There you can read the description for each of the packages in the feed. Also shown are the dependencies, and other useful information.

BTW, I did try to search for this on the Ubuntu forums, but came up with no answer.

Thank you ofels, I may just try installing synaptic. I hope it's not too heavy for the zaurus, like many other GUI package managers are.
The other reason I'm replying to this, is that I found a solution to my mess up with aptitude above.
Here's a thread in Ubuntu forums with a solution.
"[SOLVED] apt-get autoremove wants to uninstall most of my system"

I just followed these instructions:
CODE
aptitude keep-all
