      Description

      It would be great if it were easy to set the description over http, so events
      that occur that might change something about the build can easily update the
      description for everyone to see! An example that would be useful here is when
      deploying a branch, update the description of the project for that branch with
      the revision, timestamp, and environment it was deployed to.

      Attached is a patch which implements this! Now you can easily do:

      wget http://localhost:8080/job/test/description --post-data="description=new"
