Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos started a new discussion on CONTRIBUTING.md:

>  # Gnulib
> -The files at `gl/`, `src/gl/` and `lib/unistring` directories are part of
> -gnulib project and are included mainly for systems which may miss functionality
> -available in glibc and unistring libraries. These files are updated when new
> -functionality is needed or bug fixes affecting gnutls are required.
> +The directories `gl/`, `src/gl/` and `lib/unistring` contain gnulib files
> +copied/created by `./bootstrap`. Gnulib is a portability source code library
> +to handle API or behavior incompatibilities between target systems.
> -They can be updated by the following make rule.
> +To take advantage of the latest gnulib files, we have to update the
> +`gnulib/` submodule from time to time:

Do we need that rule at all now with bootstrap? (i.e., why not say re-run bootstrap  locally)?
