Hi Tom,

Would you be able to work out an example where the git-describe is used
to create this, similar to what we do with os-release?  I think this is
going to be the typical use case and we had a huge trouble getting
os-release to be done "correctly" at the beginning.  I think having a
well-tested example to copy from should limit the issues others will
have in trying to implement their own.
