Git version 1.7.9 added the feature to set the branch description ( git branch --edit-description [branch name]) but the dialog in netbeans to create a new branch does not support that.

Operating System = Linux version 3.8.0-28-generic running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_15

@jonathanvilalopez: Branch-description? What is your usecase? Where in the IDE you expect to show this information?
