Edit description link should be grey by default, not blue
Open, MediumPublic

Description

In what seems a regression, the "edit description" link is shown in blue. That makes it too prominent.

In the screenshot below you can see that a user edited the page description to participate in the conversation (having the "edit description" link as the most prominent actionable item may have contributed to the confusion):

Note that this button is defined twice, once in PHP and once in JS. See "editButton" in includes/OOUI/BoardDescriptionWidget.php and modules/flow/ui/widgets/mw.flow.ui.BoardDescriptionWidget.js respectively. Both need to have the progressive flag removed.
