We can select "Archive X" or "Restore X" but we don't have any information about them.

You have to look at Git log, archives have a meaningful commit message.
The reason you don't have more information than what is said in each widget is that the system does not actually do an archive, it only export PT/PI/CR/Groups to XML files and save them in Git.
A natural evolution of the system would be to list all archive with a given commit message and let the user choose among them, but that's for a later time.

I agree that this is a bit confusing when you don't know. As a simple measure I suggest that we add a descriptive blurb to the administration page, explaining this. Also, wer could change the confirmation popup to say "saved in git with commit id ... And tag ..."

It's seems OK but can't we add more information ? like a textarea which suggest to add a description before archiving ?

That sounds like a great idea! We could add the message into the git commit, too.

That's a completely different user story, tracked here: #2355, so I close that one.
