There's now no problem with the version string in the about dialog (in
theory anyway). I've already stuffed in the commit-ids of all the repos
(long for now, will be short when/if we go to one-git). The question now
is about what "version" to select in the bugzilla version dropdown list
in the web-ui when reporting a bug found in a daily so that it doesn't
get dismissed as "unspecified: user couldn't even bother to select
correct version" as opposed to "dailies: user is ultra-motivated qa who
found a bug today that wasn't there yesterday"

Unspecified is the best-fit for now, but it would be nice to separate
"dailies" from "unspecified". Is it possible to add another entry into
the bugzilla LibreOffice version list just for "dailies" (or nightlies)
