Thanks, Mark. Very helpful. And you're right. It would be perfectly acceptable to quickly introduce the notion of the precise value of the revision not being significant in itself. My traditional approach has been to introduce students to version control early in their college careers, initially just giving each student their own individual repository. This has two advantages:

(i) It's very convenient for them to shuttle their stuff between college labs and home computers, so they use it extensively.
(ii) Version control is then very much demystified for them and it's much easier to broach topics like merging and teamwork a semester later.

It was in this context that I was trying to keep it really simple initially. But you're right, the revision number thing can be quickly mentioned without opening a Pandora's box. Perhaps you should consider education as a career!

Thanks again,

Don Ryan.
