When a user is asked to select mailing lists in their edit newsletters page, it would be nice to display the description of each list (e.g. the taxonomy description).

This can be done with #type=>checkbox rather than checkboxes, and adding the #description.

Thanks,

+ 1 for adding subscriptions
-- 1 for using type 'checkbox'. Use a #theme instead.

Title:Showing taxonomy description under mailing lists in edit pageShowing newsletter description in newsletter lists

Changing title because taxonomy will die in Simplenews D7.
Some more thoughts: Newsletter description maybe usefull in 'public' newsletter forms, not on admin pages.

+1 for adding the newsletter description below the newsletter title when subscribing

I'd like to see this on both the newsletter/subscriptions page and when editing subscriptions for an account (user/3/edit/newsletter).

Our site maintains separate high-frequency and low-frequency newsletters for people with different preferences, and having the descriptions on the subscription pages would help users figure out which newsletter they should subscribe to.

The provided patch adds descriptions to newsletter subscribe/unsubscribe checkboxes. It also links newsletter names to issue lists (for user-accessible form) or options editing form (for admin-accessible form).

We need to check those changes one by one after applying. Thanks for your suggestion.
In general this issue is/was about "adding description" only...

Note that this patch will produce some collision with
#805114: Cleanup Form creation processes
So we should apply it before starting on the form cleanup for D7.
