are you looking for ways to make simple things complicated ?

date-based versioning (eg. YYYY-MM) only makes sense, when you
have an appropriate release schedule.

I'd really prefer semantic versioning - especially for stable distros
and embedded systems (here you dont wanna do arbitrary updates ...).

Anyways, retrieving the dates from tags should be pretty trivial,
And just takes a few lines of shellscript to generate a nice
html page ...
