Hi Roy,

   I'm not entirely sure you can handle that with liveebuild. In my opinion the correct
   thing to do is not to attempt to put the revision in the package
   version but to have it exposed in some other way(say a metadata
   variable holding the installed revision). Otherwise you're just going
   to end up trying to get more precise and more precise times.

   Really, you shouldnt be putting dates in place of revisions in the
   package version. It's just a bad idea.
