Commit message policy change


I just pushed a minor change to the KiCad commit message policy[1].  It
may take a few hours before the KiCad developer docs get updated.  The
NEW tag has been deprecated.  Please use the ADD(ED) tag when adding new
features that the user will see.  This should simplify things a bit as
NEW and ADD(ED) are effectively the same tag.

Please keep in mind that the commit tags are only for commits that make
changes that impact how the user interacts with KiCad.  Fixing bugs
where the expected behavior was the reason for the bug report should not
be tagged with CHANGE(D).  Please do not use tags for trivial changes
such as UI string changes or additions.  The end goal of these tags are
to create change logs for releases.
