#6579 new defect (bug)

Improve meta descriptions when viewing tags in theme directory.

Description

If you visit https://wordpress.org/themes/tags/full-site-editing/ directly, the meta description is a list of author names. This should probably not be the case. We should update it to something more relevant.

Example:

Posts about Full Site Editing written [...]

Most likely due to:
https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress.org/blob/b255d2fc6b2666cc94ae9895d389a4de94271284/wordpress.org/public_html/wp-content/themes/pub/wporg-themes/functions.php#L325

Why would it matter? Those pages are noindex anyway.
