Problems with site templates/solutions in SharePoint 2010

All our projects have a dedicated subsite in a site collection. I have my master site that I save as a new template (using UI) to the solutions gallery after each batch of changes. It works pretty good with the exception of the Title column in all lists. In my master site the Title is renamed to something else (Project ID, Product ID, etc), custom description is added, and the option to "Enforce unique values" is selected. All this happens on a list level. Once it is saved as a template and a new site is created all this gets reverted to a default (Title, no description and enforce not selected).

What needs to be done to save that information in a template so the new site has this already once it is created. It takes me a lot of time renaming Title and adding descriptions on all lists in new sites...

You should be able to edit teh XML that is generated and make your changes there.  You can use  Sharepoint Manager to look at your running site to see what changes have been made to your list columns, and apply that to the XML that is generated in your template.

You might have to use Visual Studio to create a new solution based on your site tempalte in order to edit the XML, I can't remember.
