How do I get rid of the full stop after the description in the glossary? 🔗

If you are using version 3.03 or above, use the package option nopostdot. Alternatively (version 1.03 or above) just redefine \glspostdescription to do nothing:

\renewcommand{\glspostdescription}{}
As from v1.17, if you want to remove it for a particular entry, use \nopostdesc in that entry’s description.

Note that with glossaries-extra, the nopostdot setting is the default. You can switch it on with postdot and use \nopostpunc as an alternative to \nopostdesc (which removes the punctuation without removing the post-description hook).
