I think it's will be very confusing to add status whiteboard as part
of description, given current values of status whiteboard field.
Adding new custom field does worth it also. I suggest just drop it.

The URL field is already added to Description field. See SVN-4129 for example:

+1, but I'm going to do this after migration when issue tracker on
tigris will be read-only.
