Description Chad H. 2012-02-15 17:59:51 UTC
Right now we extract revision numbers from the .svn directories for display on Special:Version for core & extensions.

This should be modified to use git commit hashes. Using the first 6 characters is the accepted shorthand and would suffice for display purposes.

Including the date would be more useful?

If that's feasible, sure :) If we're going to have links to gitweb or whatever other repo viewer we use then we'll need the commit hashes for linking anyway.
