Does it need to be specifically <meta name="description" content="..." /> or can <meta property="description" content="..." />?

If it can be property= then that's easy, as I can use Jetpacks functionality for it, however I note that some tools don't seem to detect property="description" even though that works for opengraph. I suspect the answer is that it needs to be name="description" but wanted to verify before I put in work to make it work like that.

Great, lets see if I can figure out how to make Jetpack support that.. :)

In 8008: Add a <meta name="description" tag to mirror the OpenGraph tags.

Fixes #3983.
