Item13757: Move SHORTDESCRIPTION into PackageForm.
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.0.2
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
While %$RELEASE and %$VERSION are added to the System.PackageForm
, %$SHORTDESCRIPTION is not
a structured way other. At best plugin authors set an according preference variable:
* Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = %$SHORTDESCRIPTION%
This makes it unnecessarily hard to extract the description, i.e. in Extensions.JsonReport
which uses the
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.
needs to be changed as well.
