The date string in the version printout is the date/time it was built, not
the date of the last change in git. That gives you a useful string if you
have a sequence of local edits that aren't committed yet. The git hash is
there if you want the git info.
You can find version.c in build/main/ntpd/ and friends.
It would be nice if waf was smart enough to recompile version at all the
right times. It might miss some case. I mostly use a script that rm-s the
build directory so I haven't had problems.
I have another script that lets waf do its thing to save time. It rm-s the
version stuff. I think that used to relink things that didn't change, but I
just tried it and it skipped the relinking. Maybe I was confused. Maybe
Amar fixed something.
Speaking of version strings, the current string doesn't include the time zone.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
