Summary0011472: [patch] Make Description hideable in configuration option bug_report_page_fields

Even if the description field is deleted from the option bug_report_page_fields, it is still displayed.

As the description is not totally crucial (in the age of Twitter, people are might be able to describe simple issues precisely in the one-line summary), we added the ability to hide the description field and make it non-required.

TagsNo tags attached.

The 4 patches are here:;h=refs/heads/mantisbt-issue11472

Please note that the latest patch also allows to hide the summary field:

"Additional Fixes and allow to hide summary-field

  • Remove the "required field" markers in the report page if the allow_no_xxx is set
  • Also allow to hide the summary field and add an option to allow an empty summary.
    Even this case might be rare, there are environments were even a summary is not needed
    (for example when there are specific custom fields that already describe the problem well)"
