Description

Hi,

In a project, when having testers/reporters that are newcomers in the job, they could hesitate between different trackers
before opening their request. It would be a good thing that trackers could own a description field. This description
should appear in an info bubble when the mouse is flying over the tracker name, i.e. in the Overview of a project and/or
in the top of the issue page (pages generated by URL: projects/list_issues/#?set_filter=#&tracker_id=#).

I'll be glad to precise my thoughts if needed.

Tom.

Shouldn't that be easy to implement?

Where trackers descriptions to be shown? Possible places are:
  • New issue form, next to the dropbox of the trackers - show the description of the currently selected tracker
  • Project settings page, Information tab - on mouse hovering on the tracker names, or small icon next to each tracker name - clicking on it show baloon with tracker's description.

That shouldn't be so hard, I guess.
