How does one change the description for a repository?

When I created a repository I entered a description. Since the scope of the repository has increased I'd like to change the description field. I've search everywhere but am unable to find the answer. You can see the description for each repository when you go to your home page.

Please have a look , there you will see settings when you browse the repository (Shortcut 'r' and then 'a')

once you enter in Repository Admin you can edit description field..



I cannot find the Cog icon, I have searched everywhere and I cannot change my repository description. Has things changed? Is it still possible to do that? 

I noticed that in my new repository there's a link to include the new project's description, so we can only add and not change it later?

Please help. Thanks


Awaiting response on this.

I believe a small typo shall not cause pinching to the eyes forever. There must be a way to fix it.

No cog for me either.

Repository settings can be found under the cog icon on the right-hand side of any page of the repository overview. For more information about the things that can be managed from the cog menu, check out the documentation.
