I suggest spending less time arguing, and more time coming up with a *solution*, and not a proposed solution. Changes to the tree, newvers.sh, etc....

We're trying to come up with the solution but it basically, involves three areas. 1. Creation of a .timestamp file added to the source tree.

Sure, the only thing that's disagreed upon is the format of the timestamp, and how often it's built. *THIS* is the crux of the matter, and if you can come up with *something*, then the rest is politics.

we need timestamps to track changes to the source. timestamp file is generated as a result of cvs commit. each commit changes the timestamp file. if 4 days go by without a commit ;) the timestamp file does not change

timestamp is then incorporated into uname (hhmmm....every commit means a kernel recompile ;<) extend uname to write the timestamp into the kernel ala hostname. add this to /etc/rc.....???
