We often use roles to give different functions to different users. Sometimes it is hard to descirp a role just by it's name. It would be great to have the possiblity to add a short description to the roles, so that we can have a look at it while we setup the userroles.

If u do, then it should be only for administrators, the rest of the ACL has nothing to do.

I can surely understand such need, but in my opinion the administrators shouldn't have any need of knowing what the role does. The admins should only follow the instructions set up by the developer: "If user needs access to documents Level 22, then add him to a group with role XYZ enabled".

There is also another way to better describe what the role does: create a group that has the role enabled and the groupname can be very precise in what the role does. Then it is pretty clear when You look in the acl what the role do...

Another option/suggestion (in my opinion) would bebto remove any limitations on the length of the rolename so that the name can be extremely descriptive in it self. Then the "comment" field would be unnecessary.
