Are you using it to interact with repos on GitHub itself? Repo 
descriptions aren't a standard feature of Git - they're part of the 
tools you use to interact with them (like GitHub/GitWeb etc.). With 
GitWeb you put a description file in your repo's .git directory which is 
then used on the web front end. Perhaps GitHub for Mac uses this too?
