Just take the HEAD revision. We don't keep track of which revision we
build the snapshot from. Only at release time do we make a tag.

Well, it doesn't matter so much to us (committers) while we are in
development. Things can change quickly. If a third-party needs updating
we update. Even if you work with Maven, you may have local snapshot
builds that you put in your local repository. You don't necessarily know
which revision this was built of. In our case, that JAR isn't put into a
repository but bundled with the rest of the sources. No external
repositories necessary to do a build. No disappointments when the
repository server is offline.

I guess what we could try is to include the SVN revision number in the
manifest. Batik does that if I remember correctly. We could do the same.
Maybe someone/I finds some time at some point.
