Subject: [Boost-testing] revisions and timestamps

Now that regression testers go against Github, the reported revision # is a
bunch of random hexadecimal digits (for instance, "rev 29e219") rather than
an increasing number like in SVN, which makes it very hard to determine at a
glance if a particular test pre- or postdates a revision one's interested in.

I see also that the reported timestamp, which looks like

 "Sun, 19 Jan 2014 06:08:04 +0000"

seems to indicate the time where the result file was generated, which is
of little use. Woukd it be hard to adapt the scripts so that the reported
date is instead that associated to the revision? Is this info available to
the regression tester? The change, if possible, would render regression
tables much more usable.

Thank you,
