            Bug ID: 104843
           Summary: Mesa version not updated for rebuild
           Product: Mesa
           Version: git
          Hardware: Other
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Other
          Assignee: baker.dylan.c at gmail.com
          Reporter: mark.a.janes at intel.com
        QA Contact: mesa-dev at lists.freedesktop.org

I rebuilt mesa 18.0rc3, but was surprised to get the following result:

$ glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version string"
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 18.0.0-rc2 (git-17c0e248d7)

The git sha is correct, but the rc2 string did not get updated.

This may create confusion when developers report bugs and use glxinfo to report
the version of mesa they are testing.

Apparently, VERSION is only reevaluated when the meson build is reconfigured. 
This should be fixed in the build if possible.  It may be that this is a Meson
limitation; if so, we need a Meson feature request logged in github, or another
mechanism within Mesa for version handling.
