Zilla - Conventions

I think it would be nice if we all followed a certain convention when uploading patches to Zilla. In your description field, I would suggest that you preface it with the name of the file modified by the patch. For instance, if I modified the file login.bml, my description field would be:

login.bml - Takes care of setting/deleting the userprop and the cookie

If everyone did this, it would be very easy to see from a list of attachments all the files that were modified by the various attachments. Without writing the filename in the description, you have to click on (view) the patch to see what file it modifies. I think it would just be easiest if everyone placed the filename at the beginning of the description field.

What does everyone else think about this?
