While %$RELEASE and %$VERSION are added to the System.PackageForm, %$SHORTDESCRIPTION is not stored in a structured way other. At best plugin authors set an according preference variable:


This makes it unnecessarily hard to extract the description, i.e. in Extensions.JsonReport which uses the pattern() feature of %SEARCH for that. Expensive.

Instead we should add

| Description | text | 60 | | one line description of the module |

to the PackageForm. BuildContrib needs according fixes as well to extract the formfield content when converting the extension topic.

Extensions.PackageForm needs to be changed as well.

Further work in Item13750
