Starting with the first release of 2017, Mesa's version scheme is
year-based. Filenames are in the form <tt>mesa-Y.N.P.tar.gz</tt>, where
<tt>Y</tt> is the year (two digits), <tt>N</tt> is an incremental number
(starting at 0) and <tt>P</tt> is the patch number (0 for the first
release, 1 for the first patch after that).

In the past, GLUT, GLU and the Mesa demos were released in conjunction with
Mesa releases.  But since GLUT, GLU and the demos change infrequently, they
were split off into their own git repositories:
