trac: let ticket-reporter (and owner) edit description of ticket

I would like to be able to edit the description text of tickets I've opened in the Haiku-OS trac.

I didn't find a ticket like this with the query: https://dev.haiku-os.org/query?component=Website%2FTrac

As a just-registered reporter, I would expect to be able to edit the description of the tickets I report. I've chosen Type: bug because not being able to do this is surprising to me in an unnecessary way.

The main reason for me to do this is to clarify a ticket description. (I don't want to change its scope!) A minor reason is to fix syntax errors I made dispite the preview button.

There is an edgewall ticket https://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/7438#comment:18 with a cookbook wiki page linked.

I think this is a trac issue, but reading edgewell ticket history spanning 9 years I perceive a tendency towards solving this from configuration/plugins.

I would like the permission for the reporter (author). I don't know if it's different from the owner.

We restrict permissions on tickets for a reason. I don't think it's possible to grant permissions to edit ticket bodies without also granting permission to edit other parts of the ticket, which we don't want to allow. Generally users should not need to edit ticket bodies; you can add a comment clarifying the situation.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
