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.
