I was just looking at the docs for gitblit [1]. It looks like it uses the local git repo's config file. So doing something like git config gitblit.description "Desc here", on the git blit server might be what is needed to set it

Yeah. Gerrit stores this info in refs/meta/config. Maybe we could setup a cron to fetch the data from there and set it via git config like you suggest.
