I'm waiting now since some days to get more feedback but I think there 
is no one else speaking up.

The effort would be to do the following:

- update every release item of the release matrix
- extract the "SVN" and "Git hash" terms
- put these terms into the *.msg files for every language
- that needs to be translated into the respective language, otherwise 
it's still in English and nothing is won ;-)
- create a logic to identify if the release is based on SVN or Git

IMHO it's way too much effort for to less benefit.

Sorry ;-(
