User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5 Build Identifier: bugzilla 3.4.2 page.cgi?id=fields.html is now a static page. With bug 529201 this would be a semi-static page. Anyhow, the description of a field, and the description of the values shown in page.cgi?id=fields.html is not linked with the fields and values defined in admin pages (editvalues, editfields) . It would be nice if the field description and the description of the used values could be set in the administration page, and that page.cgi?id=fields.html uses this info. Remark: translation can be an issue here. Reproducible: Always
Actually, we want to get rid of the field "display names" in the database entirely, except for for the custom fields. There may be a bug for editing field_descs from the admin interface, though--that's something that could possibly be implemented in the far-ish future.
