hi mike,

in the days of hosting the ERG in CVS, we had a so-called commit hook
to force-update the revision on ‘Version.lisp’ whenever any of the
grammar files were changed.  this mechanism got lost when migrating to
SVN, but i it imagine should not be hard to re-instante.  i am tempted
to look into that for the ERG before too long, but need to finalize a
manuscript first :-)

cheers, oe
