Sure, this is a github's own "Description" field: http://i.imgur.com/VjlXn3c.png
It supports 3 lines of text or so plus a website filed.

The "Website" field could be set to a project's home page;
projects.kde.org/* as default but maybe something better grabbed from
our metadata, e.g. https://community.kde.org/Frameworks for KF5.

So do we still need to alter the READMEs?
