Issue description edit UI/UX issues overview

Introduction

This page lists an overview of issues which are speaking about a/the 'issue description edit' UI/UX issue.

The initial change that is the root of these long-standing issues is r1129, which itself was done in preparation for #563 and #607. After that, r8102 for #7603 intended to (and does to a certain extend) elevate the reports up to then. Nevertheless, it still seems it could use optimization/redesign based on the issues reported after that change for #7603.

This list could be used for tracking all these issues and for getting an insight into what is actually expected.
