Django-svn-revision: A Django pluggable App To Display Revisions In Views

2009-03-11_1116.pngDjango-svn-revision is a Django pluggable app that can be added easily to your existing Django application.   It gives you the ability to embed the revision into the meta tags or any other place in your views.  
This originally started out as just a template tag that would call svnversion every time the page loaded.  Then we refined it to use an __init__.py file beforehand to limit resources.  Finally we converted it into a pluggable app so it will work easily with other applications.  
One useful application is to help out the QA process by enabling testers to match up revisions.  Django-svn-revision is available on our github repository for download. Feel free to use it in your project.  Let us know how it works out!
