Description

When we use "Generic CFEngine Command variable definition" technique, it's not obvious that the variable prefix to use is generic_cmd_var_def :
  1. it's written in the description that is hidden when we create the directive
  2. unless we click on "show technical details"

A first solution would be to have a hover text on the field; but we'd benefit from a doc entry as well
