Our automation which maintains the github.com mirror configuration
doesn't currently update repository descriptions, because it
maintains insufficient state and attempting to query all our 1.5k+
repos there overruns their API throttling limits very quickly.

Correct, only the organization admins for the repo in question can
update its description. For the "openstack" organization that's
basically the Infra team's root sysadmins.
