currently, the translation checks rely on querying CVS to get the revision
number of the original version. But if we changed them to read the revision
number directly in the wml file, like it is done for the translations
themselves, then we would have a VCS-independant system.

And I do not know for other VCSes, but it looks straightforward to
do with Git keyword expansions similar to what CVS does with $Revision$.
See for instance:


So it looks like there would be a smooth path for migration, that does not
require to change all paradigms at the same time.
