Subject Re: git revision missing when building 4.1.7 from the source tarball
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2019 16:09:03 GMT
Hi Don,

We build the source tarball with "dmake aoo_srcrelease" [1].

Maybe the git hash can additionally be put into a file which is used
when no .git directory is present?
This should even work if the person who wants to build from source
tarball has no git installed...
