Naming for testing builds #3
Testing builds had svn revision number in their names, for example 15.0-testing-r1283, where r1283 is the revision number. GIt being a distributed VCS doesn't have such revision numbers.
However we still need something to distinguish the testing releases. At best the naming scheme should remain unchanged in order to provide compatibility with existing installations. This is necessary because the built-in update routine relies on existing naming scheme.
Version names for testing releases are automatically generated during make process. That's coded in Makefile.am.
