I'm sure I spotted some recent trac chatter covering a new MIME  
filtering ability for the Object Chooser, can't find it again off hand  
just now.

If you go to your 'Dashboard' you'll see your projects listed on the  
right, from there you land in the 'Project Overview' tab, click  
'Project Settings' and you get to edit all the original fields as per  
when you created the project.

Same here for me with Moon, I consider (for Moon and  
other moved reps) deprecated though I have no idea how to change the  
rep description to show "DEPRECATED - see" like  
others have done (read and chat). Any hints?
