Add a summary to projects
|Target version:||Candidate for next major release|
There are two places where projects are displayed in mass:
/projects and the project's admin. On both places, part of the description is displayed. This is suboptimal as the view gets really messy if you include some more verbose status information into the description.
Thus I propose adding a short summary to the project which is displayed in these locations. It would make the view much clearer and more usable because of better content.
The attached patch introduces this.

/projects view uses
Project.short_description too (and thus the short summary if present). And if the users use sane summaries (i.e. one line descriptions), the view is indeed rather usable as it is today.
Although some minor CSS fixes (like indenting the description a few pixels) could still help here, this is another issue.
