Our build setup has a project specific assemblyinfo file and a
global one that contains only the revision pieces. Each project has
a pre-build step that checks for the existence of the global one.
If it does not exist, the default template is copied into place.
The template has a revision number of 65534. This lets us know
that a particular project was built on a developer's system, not
the build system.
The build system, prior to building any projects, creates a version-
specific global assemblyinfo file that contains the version number
of the build. The version number for the build is taken from the
output of svnversion. Mixed revs are not an issue on our build
Works for us.
