General Settings - Description

What is the intention of the field 'Description' on the General Settings page? It appears to only be visible on admin screens or the 'settings' tab of the build configuration.

I put a brief description of the build configuration in that field that would be useful to users, but they cannot see it easily. It seems to me that this information would be more useful in a higher utilized area of the interface. Perhaps the 'overview' tab of a build configuration, or even on the main page itself (either directly or via some sort of hover-triggered popup).

Am I putting non-typical information in this field? Is it available to users in some other place that I am missing? Is anyone getting good use out of this field? It seems fairly useless to normal users in its current state.

Thanks.

I brought this up about a year and half ago: http://jetbrains.net/tracker/issue/TW-1437

You could try voting for it.

Hmmm, a year and a half ago? I guess that gives me little confidence that this feature will get added.

But, I do think it will be useful so I voted for it. Maybe others will see this and agree with us.

Thanks.
