Description

When uploading attachments, you can add a one-line file description. It would be nice if it'll also be possible to add some longer text in a textarea, that'll be displayed after the short description in the ticket comment.

Currently, I'll usually upload the attachment with a short description and add another separate comment with a longer description, which is a bit annoying.

I think this could be solved by having a resizable textarea for the attachment description, have editable descriptions (#787) and finally a notification for new attachments (#2259).

As an implementation detail, getting rid of the "permanent" vs. "transient" distinction for ticket changes could be replaced by a distinction between "own" comments and comments related to ancillary resources. Here as well, some of the ideas outlined in GenericTrac would help.

Let's keep this ticket for the first item (a resizable textarea for the attachment description).

In that case I renamed the ticket.

I'm not quite sure - the message one could write along with the attachment could be rather big (like mine comment:19:ticket:9643).

I think there should be a distinction between the attachment description, which should be quite short and appear in the 'Attachments' section above 'Change history' and the full-sized text describing the attachment which would only appear in the comment.

If agreed, please change the summary to reflect that.

What about showing the first line of your attachment description in the attachments section and the rest of text, inc the first line, in the change history?

Sounds good. Just make sure to point it out in the file attachment form.
