It can be overwhelming to look down the list of modules and I think a short, simple description / desc / summary field in the module metadata will help the user be able to understand what the module does. This could at some point be considered compulsory for modules
This have been removed long time ago because it was not maintainable, in favor of documentation.
Ah ok, so how about a link to the online documentation in the list instead?
I do not think it will be useful because the proper workflow is to look at the documentation for the needs and then activate the required modules. The administration menus are not an advertising for the software, it is a technical tool for administrators.
I like that idea. It prevents cheap modules to advertise new companies. I was thinking more of linking to the tryton.org docs though so you have the control.
