API Reference (API Version 2015-04-13)

UpdateRepositoryDescription

Sets or changes the comment or description for a repository.

Note

The description field for a repository accepts all HTML characters and all valid Unicode characters. Applications that do not HTML-encode the description and display it in a web page could expose users to potentially malicious code. Make sure that you HTML-encode the description field in any application that uses this API to display the repository description on a web page.
