I observed that I can no longer use "cloud-sccs" to obtain the git commit id Information of
the build used. I observed that the sccs-info file under /user/share/doc/cloud/ has been replaced
with version-info file. Version-info file has the ASF License and Implementation_Version Information
(looks like the timestamp of the build creation). May I know whether the git commit information
has been intentionally removed from the location. If Yes, May I know how will I be able to
figure out whether the build used has a particular commit id ? Kindly let me know.

Yes - I removed it - even though the function that creates sccs-info
and configure-info have statements that fill this with non-helpful
information, apparently it wasn't making it to those cases. The fact
that this has been a long complained about problem for folks building
cloudstack (Wido raised this concern about a year ago) and the fact
that in 4.1 we are finally defenstrating waf convinced me we could do
without it at this point. Essentially if you have a copy of cloudstack
that doesn't generate this and your rpm build wasn't broken you are
within just a few revs of the tip of 4.0. (I didn't remove it from
master, as we are going to generate RPMs and DEBs without sccs-info.
