Subject Re: git revision missing when building 4.1.7 from the source tarball
Date Thu, 03 Oct 2019 19:16:31 GMT
Here is the logic of the patch:

Basically, at build time, the same system in place to get the "repo version" is used... During
the build it checks to see if the build is based on a git checkout and, if so, uses the short
hash. If not a git repo, it sees if it's SVN and uses that. If neither, then it looks for
a special file solenv/inc/reporevision.lst and uses the string in there as the repo revision

What the aoo_srcrelease process does now is that it finds the git/svn revision and places
that *in* the reporevision.lst file. So when people build from the source repo, it will be
the revision number from the version that the source repo was from.
