In TeX Live packages we use the highest number of all the 
last-change revisions of the included files. That works *very* nicely
(besides the fact that we sometimes delete files from a package, which
seems not to be important for you).

SO there we get a nice revision number which is ever increasing.
The whole online update mechanism is based on that, so don't tell
me it doesn't work ... ;-)))

I was actually inquiring about git and a similar approach, because
I wanted to see if we can swithc to git instead of svn. git is *much* *much*
more efficient, And we could pull from git repositories of luatex/xetex
(if they swithc) and others. But well, it turned out to be
not really easy ;-)

Part of traditional mating rite. During the first hot day of spring,
all the men in the tube start giving up their seats to ladies and
staphanging. The purpose of pitsligo is for them to demonstrate their
manhood by displaying the wet patches under their arms.
