Add a General Attribute

A general attribute type includes non-traceable attributes such as flavor, color, scent, and size.  The terms for a general attribute will vary based on the general attribute's name.  For example; a flavor general attribute may have the terms, Strawberry, Orange, Pineapple, and a size general attribute may have the terms Small, Medium, and Large.  Before adding products with general attributes such as flavor, color, and size, the products' general attributes must first be added.
