Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos commented on a 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:

Seeing the change below, I didn't understand the text here. What I understood is that the gnulib will be updated locally with the latest. What I think it is done is that the gnulib used by the project is updated to the latest upstream, and the result is committed to the repo.
