OPEN ISSUE: It better be possible to edit the description only by the initiator of the issue, however, letting it to all users is fine also.

this has been possible for years, see the « more » link when updating an issue.
You might want to open an other issue regarding usability issue with this link, a lot of people seem to miss this link.

This is documented in the Wiki though: RedmineIssues.

But nobody reads documentation :)

I've been using Redmine since 2007 (I think) and so I now know that the link is there, but there was a while after that part of the UI changed that I assumed the functionality had been lost (there used to be an "edit" button). I know exactly what Paul is talking about, and the reason why Gal has opened this issue - the functionality is not easily discoverable.

Where's that link?

Ah, I see! it's in the first fieldset heading on the Update page: "Change properties (more)".

Actually I like that a lot: it hides stuff that is rarely changed, while still making it available if needed in a logical place.

I've had a go at improving the Wiki text to make it clearer for people like me that skim-read documentation.
