Sources for 11.11 kernel release

This is a recap of the discussion we did about source meta data for
packages. While interesting it was fruitless, nothing has happened.
I'd like to propose to put lava-friendly meta data in:
The file should look like this (for bzr-based projects)
And like this for git-based projects
If needed we can add support for svn (although I'd prefer to work with
a bzr-svn import on launchpad in that case).
The field commit_timestamp can be removed. It is optional and can be
resolved automatically assuming the repository is still alive. Still
it is highly recommended to include this information directly.
The field project_name should refer to a launchpad project (when using
bzr branches) or to a consistently-named upstream project (otherwise).
I'm not saying this will help to solve OPs problem but at least it
will feed LAVA with loads of meta-information about source that runs
on the tested boards. If someone likes this format it could be adopted
by other tools.
