Subject Re: git revision missing when building 4.1.7 from the source tarball
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2019 18:55:04 GMT
That sounds reasonable.  I suggest .revision since the value ends
up as the Revision value in versionrc.  Whatever the name, it should
be added to .gitignore.

Since this is not a regression, I don't consider it a blocker for
4.1.7.  In the meantime, I have a workaround for the FreeBSD port.
