[thredds] use of "variables" metadata and odd appearance on TDS catalog page

Hi All,
When I add variables in the metadata section of my TDS catalog, they appear on 
the TDS catalog page with a mysterious blank entry such as: "temp = = 
sea_water_potential_temperature (Celsius)". What can I add to get the "= =" 
filled in? I don't find anything in the documentation about an additional 
parameter, such as description or long_name that might fill this in. Here is 
the example metadata entry in my catalog:

  <variables vocabulary="CF-1.4">
    <variable name="temp" vocabulary_name="sea_water_potential_temperature" 
units="Celsius" />

Also, I noticed that FMRC aggregations automatically populate these metadata 
from the NetCDF files themselves while in other datasets I have to explicitly 
add the above metadata entries myself. (And incidentally, FMRC catalogs don't 
have this missing "= =" problem.) Would be nice if this was automated for all
