Description Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2015-04-10 17:10:00 UTC
It would be very helpful to know when an Android build was produced just by looking in the 'About' dialog. This is the easiest way to know if you have the latest testing build installed. Daily desktop builds already include this information.

For bonus points, it would be great to make the Build ID a hyperlink to cgit @ FDO.

Bumping priority --> this will make things easier as we expand our Android testing team.
Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2015-04-11 04:30:31 UTC
As with bug 79438, setting Severity -> enhancement
Comment 3 Christian Lohmaier 2017-09-01 12:51:54 UTC
using *date* is nogo/not telling,  but  having clickable link to cgit (where user then can see date of commit/log) is more feasible.
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2017-09-03 09:17:59 UTC
Additionally, a Git log link will allow you to deduce the age of your build.
