In bug 1043390, the Git info from about:buildconfig was hidden behind MOZILLA_OFFICIAL to help Windows build environments without Git available. Ideally, I'd like to keep this Git info, but without changing MOZILLA_OFFICIAL, as there are various other places where MOZILLA_OFFICIAL == false is used to mean "local developer", such as for Fennec debugging. What's the best path to keep Git source info when Git is available, but also leaving MOZILLA_OFFICIAL alone? : http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/7bcc6573d204/mobile/android/base/AndroidManifest.xml.in#l89
Mike, maybe you have an idea based on bug 1043390 comment 25? Should there be a new flag for Git info that is not set on Windows or something?
We could presumably just check for git in configure, and define something based on that.
