Put that stuff in your settings.py Then you can use the git log last date to make that your "revision number" assuming you don't use regular version release numbers. With it you can do something like:

<div id="footer">
&copy; My Company 
&mdash; The Super App (revision {{ GIT_REVISION_DATE }})
 </div>

try:
    GIT_REVISION_DATE = [x.split('Date:')[1].split('+')[0].strip() for x in
                         _proc.communicate()[0].splitlines() if x.startswith('Date:')][0]
except IndexError:
    GIT_REVISION_DATE = 'unknown'

Nice and simple idea. Since I prefer mercurial a slight modification will be needed though.

Thanks.
