Oh, I see! But then it would be easier to use the "pretty printing
date" instead of having 2 strings to compare for each repository. That
would be a nice improvement.
What I was proposing was to replace 4f11d0a-adcf6d5-c4bb9bd with
which is a simple numeric value that will continually grow because it
is an age...
One year from now you would be using build 79831260-etc-etc and you
wouldn't have to look twice to know that this build was much newer
Even better, use the string as the actual number of days which is even
easier to visually compare: 414.91490-etc-etc now, 798.31260-etc-etc
in a year, 44534.31260-etc-etc ten years from today at the exact same
It's easy to visualize and to explain to anyone the logic.
