Description

Presently there is no way to add or edit an attachment's description without downloading the file, deleting the attachment and re-attaching the file. An option to simply edit the exiting attachment's description or provide one if absent would be most useful.

I point out that projects imported from trac have all of the attachment descriptions removed. Requiring that the files themselves be downloaded from redmine, deleted and then uploaded again simply to add the descriptions increases the amount of conversion work considerably.

Would be simple and quite useful. Could you pleas implement this? I always have to play directly with the database do correct or post-add descriptions.
