This Week In Servo 73

2016-08-01 What's up with Servo for the week of 25 July 2016 - 1 Aug 2016

In the last week, we landed 85 PRs in the Servo organization’s repositories.

Guillaume Gomez (imperio) wins the award for Most Tenacious Developer for this week! He heroically pushed along his changes to add a video metadata parser and has been working tirelessly on licensing and library distribution/reference issues around it. Thanks, imperio!
