In the CTest script, set the variable CTEST_NOTES_FILES to contain the
path to a file configured with whatever information you want. It will
show up on the submission line in CDash as a notes link.
I plan to discuss revision reporting with the CDash developers at some
point. The CTest "nightly start time" model was developed with CVS
revision control where the only way to get a global version without
a tag is to use a date/time value. For modern version control tools
other models are possible, most of which will include a global revision
number or identifier as part of the Update.xml submission.
