I produce this from the program's I've written by getting the code
to disect the 'HeadURL' string. So far only with shell and perl,
I have

        SVN_ID='$HeadURL$ $LastChangedRevision$'

and the URL is something like:




It's then trivial to get it to work out of it is tagged or not. If
it is it reports "release 0.1" otherwise it reports "revision <whatever>".

Somebody suggested this approach on the list a few months ago, and
I use it; it works fine.

Karl's reports the *head*, which is probably not what you want: don't
you just want the highest of all the last changed revisions in
the sources?

For a development version I don't know a solution, but for a released
version - which you tag - then they all get stamped with the same
revision, so then it works fine.
