Possible to show Repository descriptions in Project repository listings?

We use JIRA and Bitbucket on the bitbucket/atlassian cloud. JIRA has great options for customizatin - but I don't know if it is possible to customize the web views on the bitbucket cloud.

In particular, we have several hundred repositories on bitbucket for multiple types of applications, all of which appear in the multiple pages in main view and it's a bit overwhelming to navigate - particularly since no one bothered to add descriptions to the repos.

So I painstakingly went through them all, added useful descriptions, then created multiple projects to categorize related repositories together.

But when I go to the repository listings view in my new projects - the repositories are listed WITHOUT the descriptions I painstakingly added.

Is there any way in the web app to customize/set the project Repository Listing page to display the repository description as well as the repository name, size, etc?

Unfortunately there is no way to customize this. IMO there should be a project filter on the list of repositories for a given workspace. This page includes the repository descriptions.{workspace}/workspace/repositories
