Show description of files in files tab
It would be great if, under the Files tab, Redmine showed the description entered when sending a file.
I know it's shown when the mouse hovers the file's title, but in my company we use descriptions a lot and it's not very comfortable to have to hover in every file. Sometimes, some files have even the same title.
I modified views/projects/list_files.rhtml to show the description, but maybe we could have some kind if configuration option to decide whether or not to show the description.

Well, I must warn you that I have ANY skills in Ruby, I had never seen a line of code in Ruby before :)
The modification I made is very simple, I changed line 30.
<td class="filename"><%= link_to_attachment file, :download => true, :title => file.description %></td>
<td class="filename"><%= if file.description.empty? link_to_attachment file, :download => true, :title => file.description else link_to_attachment file, :download => true, :title => file.description, :text => file.filename + \ " - " + file.description end %></td>

The feature is quite simple (unfortunately I currently can't setup a contribution environment)
redmine/app/views/files/index.html.erb just add the following (works in version 3.3.0):
# in the thead section add the following line after :field_filename <%= sort_header_tag('filename', :caption => l(:field_description)) %> # in the <th> section the colspan is extended to 7, because we have a new column # now in the table row section of the table data, add the following line after the existing filename td <td class="filename"><%= link_to_attachment file, :download => true, :text => file.description %></td>

At some point this was Feature was added to list the description next to the listing of files in the description of the ticket; however, it still does not display the description of the File in the issue update comment which shows a File was added. This is quite annoying and should be fairly trivial to add.
