When there are many versions, is difficult to see the project description.

For example: http://readthedocs.org/projects/django-cms/

This is how the change looks

Probably could be a problem, if the project contains a very large description, which I haven't seen till now.

@agjohnson

I'm -1 on this change, I'd rather find a different pattern for displaying the description field.

I personally dislike the description field and the version list is more important for users. I dislike the description field as the dashboard page is not generally a page that the readers should see, so why does it need a description field at all? Some projects have very long descriptions as well, so this pushes the version selection box down too far.

@agjohnson I agree with you, the description isn't something the readers will see (and if someone needs a long description, probably putting that on the docs is better), what about limiting the description field to plain text and less characters?

Closing for now
