Testing builds...rev numbers vs dates.

Sorry if this is not 100% a Subversion question (but related).

Our testing department recently required that all builds submitted no
long have a rev (or build) number, but only the date that the build was
made. All tracking of what rev a bug happened on will be one based on
this date only.

This seems wrong to me. The development team counts on knowing the
build number (which is also the Subversion revision) to reproduce and
fix bugs. Sometimes the date that gets tagged on a build is not the
date it was made because it was made late at night, but not submitted to
testing until the next day.

A long time ago, I remember reading a book about software development
practices, and they talked about this issue specifically, but I can't
remember the book.

Is this the wrong way to do this? Can someone point me to a place that
talks about this?

Ron
