Description field for droplets

Can be used to enter client specific data (or even which client the droplet belongs to), etc.

    This is exactly what we need. Labels and descriptions are everyone's friends.

    I totally agree.
    Would be necessary also to add features droplet, like names and versions of SO and apps, besides info about machine's main events. This description must follows the respective backups and snapshots. Perhaps 500 chars must be sufficient.
    The page form with list of droplets must show part of these descriptions ( substr($droplet.getDescription(), 0, 100); ).
    For while I have to add features of descriptions in the names of the droplets; that isn't pratical.
