It's not good to use "Redmine" for every page meta description. Not only for SEO.

Check this (clicked "Like" on Redmined website):

Facebook uses meta description

  • For project "Overview" page Redmine shoudl use project description
  • For Wiki Redmine should use Wiki content
  • For news Redmine should use news content
  • etc

I believe there should also be a way to set meta description in layout files like it is done for HTML title (e.g.):

<% meta_description(l(:text_some_description)) -%>

P.S. The issue is related to #3121 and #225.

Wrote a plugin: http://www.redmine.org/plugins/meta
But I believe the code should be transferred (well, maybe similar code written) to Redmine core...
