ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.
We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.
Use the git sha for the revision (Feature #221)
lib/redmine/version.rb is currently reading the svn XML to find which revision the site is. I threw something together to replace that for git. Can someone review it, especially with Ruby 1.9 or a non-standard git path?
The point of the revision value is to let someone know the exact version they are running. I don't think adding additional data to it like the current branch, tag, or commit date will help much. It will either be a sha we know about directly from our repo or it will be a custom sha from a fork.
