I want to have appendixes containing an overview of RFC, W3C and other standards discussed in my paper. Of course I also have them in my bibliography, but the overview should look like

RFC 1234 Title of the standard
Short multi line summary what this standard is about and why it is important for my paper.

I want the overview to look like a glossary, but I think none of the glosseries packages are quite what I'm looking for.

I'd suggest to use biblatex for this. Sorry, but I'm out of time, so I cannot make a MWE on my own this afternoon. Maybe someone else will do it. – Schweinebacke Nov 18 '11 at 17:30
@ThomasKoch Please post an example of what you've tried so far. – Joseph Wright Nov 18 '11 at 22:16

I believe I've found the answer: plain simple description lists. The package expdlist can help with customization.
