It seems like a good starting point, but it makes me wonder who is going to
touch this afterwards due to the Perl :-)

BTW been using following for ages:

 cat scripts/update-feeds.sh 

 for feed in $(ls -1 feeds | grep -v '\.'); do	
	pushd feeds/$feed > /dev/null

	remote=$(git ls-remote --get-url)
	comment=$(git log -1 --pretty=format:"%h: %s")
	url=$(git log -1 --pretty=format:"src-git $feed ${remote}^%h")

	popd > /dev/null

	echo "# $comment" >> feeds.conf
	echo $url >> feeds.conf

producing following:

 # 21b29f3faf8b: Merge pull request #2513 from musashino205/l10n/base-upd-ja
 src-git luci git://git.openwrt.org/project/luci.git^21b29f3faf8b
 # e4ab7b4fec30: znc: fix patches applying
 src-git packages https://github.com/openwrt/packages.git^e4ab7b4fec30

Planned to convert it into make target one day...
