Nothing wrong with wishes. Having projects notify their maintainers when 
their descriptions are changed is actually a pretty decent feature request. 
I suggest filing an issue so the idea doesn't get lost in the archives.

Thanks :)

I guess you need site maintainer access to view revisions. Unfortunately 
Drupal's permissions aren't very fine grained so I don't think it's possible 
to give module maintainers access without getting it across the site. But 
there are revisions there behind the scenes, so all you need to do is ask if 
you want something reverted. A bit of a PITA, I know, but best I can suggest 
with the current infrastructure.

General FYI - If your module (haven't got that far yet) has a decent 
description with no more than a few lines before the <!--break--> tag, and 
is tagged with the appropriate category(ies), it's unlikely to be messed 
with anyway. :)
