Issue #1586 duplicate

Ask "why are you making this fork?" (BB-673)

Ian Bicking
created an issue

I get fork notifications and most of the time I can't figure out what the purpose of the fork is (nicer users name their fork something other than the name of the original repository, to clarify).

Asking for some reason for the fork would give useful information.

    We're currently writing "Made sure? OK. Please fill out the information below. It's encouraged to write a little about why you are forking in the description." in the text above the form. Perhaps we need to make the description-field required?
