Note the clunky 'cut -c 2-' bit is to strip off the leading backslash.
I couldn't figure out a better way to deal with that, since I need to
escape the % char in the git-log command, but the escape char still gets
passed through to the command and ends up in the .info file.

Currently the date shows up like:

Thu, 2 Feb 2017 16:02:08 -0500

maybe we want to tweak that.

• Allow fd.o to join forces with X.Org · 06e7f04f
Harry Wentland authored
The leadership of freedesktop.org (fd.o) has recently expressed interest
in having an elected governing body. Given the tight connection between
fd.o and X.Org and the fact that X.Org has such a governing body it
seemed obvious to consider extending X.Org's mandate to fd.o.

Quite a bit of background on fd.o leading up to this has been covered by
Daniel Stone at XDC 2018 [2] and was covered really well by Jake Edge of
LWN [1].

One question that is briefly addressed in the LWN article and was
thoroughly discussed by members of the X.Org boards, Daniel Stone, and
others in hallway discussions is the question of whether to extend the
X.Org membership to projects hosted on fd.o but outside the purpose of
the X.Org foundation as enacted in its bylaws.

Most people I talked to would prefer not to dilute X.Org's mission and
extend membership only to contributors of projects that follow X.Org's
purpose as enacted in its bylaws. Other projects can continue to be
hosted on fd.o but won't receive X.Org membership for the mere reason of
being hosted on fd.o.

v3:
- Clarify what support of fd.o projects entails without formalizing a
two-tier system for fd.o projects that fall under X.Org's mandate and
those who don't

v2:
- Subject line that better describes the intention
- Briefly describe reasons behind this change
- Drop expanding membership eligibility
