#16611 closed defect (fixed)

Add "File description" to DLLs. In particular, what does ".dll" do?

Description (last modified by dandv)

The win32 binaries of Pidgin version 2.10.11 brought a new DLL, named ".dll". There seems to be no metadata about that file.

This made me look at other DLLs' Properties -> Details, and all lack any useful description.

The .dll naming is a bug - it should have been nss-prefs.dll. It was fixed by [1648d789c7d2].

I don't think it's worth the effort to add the metadata.

How lazy.
