`man uscan` will tell you that there is a `git mode`. Unfortunately,
this mode is only able to read version numbers from tags and not
generate version numbers by reading git commit dates and such.

I have opened a bug on uscan for this: #811565 [1]. Please take a look
at it and redirect the discussion there.

I would love to see someone working on this, as this is a feature that
would be much needed in the go packaging team.
