Subject: [gentoo-dev] Is the $Id$ line in our ebuilds still useful?

All,

I understood the usefulness of this line to some when we were using CVS
since it expanded into the ebuild revision, date, etc.

This expansion doesn't take place under git, so now I don't understand
the usefulness of this line. If I have missed something, can someone
fill me in, or if it isn't useful any more can we consider removing it?

Thanks,

William
