Change the stream description

Streams descriptions are displayed when viewing the stream in the apps, and can be used to explain the purpose of a stream and link to usage guidelines, resources, or related streams.

Stream descriptions support Zulip's standard Markdown formatting, with the exception that image previews are disabled.

This feature is only available to organization owners and administrators.
