Bug Description

The link to an original description that is added when a description is updated is not as useful as it could be.

Possibilities for rethinking the link include adding an "updated on XX-XX-XXXX, see original" statement in the heading for the description. Also, the activity reported in a bug's comments could included an expandable diff of the change which might allow for the link to be removed altogether. Or even both options could be implemented.

Another consideration is that the link isn't dynamically added to the page currently when the description is updated. (Though this may be unnecessary, depending on how the info is used on the page.)
