So the "runner" is e.g. "IBM_Canada_Ltd", right? Do you want the
revision between that and the date? In that case, it looks like you
want to add a new block at line 464 of common.xsl. Based on the
immediately-preceding block which generates the runner name, you want
something like this:

             <td colspan="{$colspan}">&#160;</td>
             <xsl:for-each select="$run_toolsets//runs/run[
count(toolset) > 0 ]">
                 <td colspan="{count(toolset)}" class="revision">
                     <xsl:text>rev </xsl:text>
                     <xsl:value-of select="@revision"/>
             <td colspan="{$colspan}">&#160;</td>

I've set the CSS class to "revison", so you'll want to adjust that too
in your html/master.css file; e.g. if you want the revision formatted
like the timestamp, around line 265 change "td.timestamp" to
"td.timestamp, td.revision".

I think that @revision evaluates to an empty string if it is not
defined. If you want to make it look tidier you could add <xsl:if
test="@revision">...</xsl:if> around the inner-most two lines, to skip
the "rev " bit.
