That has been made clear.
These two issues (.info files and updating module "teasers" [*] and/or
descriptions) have gotten a bit crossed.
I have contributed to that crossing, but let me try to untangle (myself, at
Michelle has asked and is waiting for a follow-up regarding the ".info" file
system and the full implication of that for 5 and onward.
We are, and have been, talking primarily about 4.7.x contrib modules and the
cleaning of those (there are 496 when filtered for 4.7.x, as of this date.)
I mistakenly connected the idea of ".info" to the current 4.7.x module list,
and swung the conversation slightly away from meaningful.
The real issue for discussion is the clean-up of the current module
descriptions and what method to use to do that so we are forward-looking as
well as currently useful (4.7.x will be in use for quite some time.)
