Custom Fields Displayed on Overview Tab
I have been using project level custom fields to customize data for a couple of different plugins I am working on. The issue I am seeing with this is all of these custom fields are appearing on the "Overview" tab of their respective projects. This is an issue because (1) the data for these plugins does not makes sense for most users and (2) the data could have sensitive information such as api keys or passwords.
JP, can we add a "Display on overview tab" flag on the custom field edit page?

I worked around this by having my plugins store their own data. If they relate to a project, you can add a
project_id field to your table and then use something like
my_model.project to access the project they are assigned to. I went this route with my Scores plugin and it works pretty good.
Although it's a bit old and "workaround-able" I have opened issue #1738 for this feature-request.
Quick and dirty patch provided in #1746.
