Mucking around with hiveminder I saw that they have something like
'Hiveminder revision: 5403.' in the footer of each page.
This seems like a good idea.
What is the best way of doing this. I can think of several ways but
they all suck for some reason.
* get $Revision$ from a specific file - sucks cos you need to keep
changing that file.
* grab it from the server - sucks cos it keeps changing.
* get it as part of deployment - sucks cos it does not work in the sandbox.
Also, is there a reason why exposing this might be a bad idea
(security?), PR, etc.
In reality I'm evdb at ecclestoad.co.uk - http://ecclestoad.co.uk
