Description

I have developed a plugin called "redmine_custom_field_hints" which seems that it may lend itself to the core as a nice feature.

While there is the option to specify a default value for custom options, there is no way to provide a static "hint" which disappears when the user focuses the input and reappears if the input is empty when blurred.

This module only applies to issue custom fields; however, it can easily be expanded to all other custom field types. It will only work with "string", "text", and "date" input types.

This feature "push" was requested by cforce

The attached patch adds a feature very similar to the plugin. Instead of

to show the custom field's description as a placeholder. Instead of "Hint Text" column added by the plugin, it uses the custom field's description as a placeholder text.
