Editing Git Repository Descriptions

How you can go about changing the description of your git repos

It was annoying me that when viewing my repositories online the descriptions for them all were the generic 'Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the repository.'

It doesn't really tell you in any tutorial what you need to do when setting up a repository to get a description (or at least any I have followed) but the fix is very simple.

In the your git repository you should see a text file named description.

Edit it with your text editor of choice and whatever you have as the contents will be your repository description.

vi gitRepository.git/description

Done!
