Subject RE: Adding git commit ids to our packaging...
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 17:28:51 GMT
I think it should be in both.  In fact, I am hoping to push them further down.

Before our switch to git, the build number, which with svn included the revision as the last
octet, was pushed to every script, javascript, jar, and war.  I like to see that back again.
 It's very useful when trying to figure out exactly what was deployed.  I will work toward
that if there's no objections.  

I pushed in the changes to war file for now so QAs at least have some way to find the revision
number to communicate in Jira.
