replace the version number on bmo with a build number
the version number on bmo is problematic: - it isn't accurate - it can lead to confusion when determining what features we have (eg. api) bmo is currently reporting to be "4.2.11+", when really it's "4.2, with lots of changes from 4.4, 5.0, and later, plus a swag of mozilla specific modifications". that's probably too wordy to have as a version number, so a build id would be better. we should: - add a parameter which overrides the BUGZILLA_VERSION constant - update the push process to add a note to set that to yyyymmdd - make the version number on index.cgi a link to the recent-changes wiki page this scheme would make the current BUGZILLA_VERSION "20150323".
Nit: maybe we can do "2015-03-23" or "2015.03.23" or something that makes it very simple to figure out the last push date at a quick glance.
- adds param to 'general' page to override version - fallsback to "4.2+" if parameter is not set - in index.html.tmpl we have to hit the param directly, because tt will inline constants.BUGZILLA_VERSION into the compiled template

> - make the version number on index.cgi a link to the recent-changes wiki page Doesn't seem that we did this point. Also, should this not be a link on every page that display the version?

Yeah never mind about the all-pages part; for some reason I was thinking we display the version on all pages already, and I didn't think we should be linking in some places and not others.
