Subject Broken release build and git revision numbers
Date Sat, 06 Apr 2013 01:28:44 GMT

When we were using SVN the SVN revision number was used in various places. This needs to be
a number (so hashes are out) and may need to be numerically increasing ie current number bigger
than last number (not 100% on that).

This effects:
- Version numbers in framework XML description files. eg flex-config.xml.
- Version.as files in the SDK.
- Names of framework RSL files.

For now I'm going to do this:

        	<format property="build.number.date" pattern="yyyyMMdd" />

ie set the build number to the current date.

Can any Git experts please comment if there an alternative to doing this this way.

Do any IDEs use the build number form the config is any way that may be broken by this approach?

Can anyone see any issue (even minor) with this approach? 

This is a major change to how the SDK is builds, configures and names things so could have
subtle and unknown side effects.
