/* The date below is automatically updated every day by a bot. During
development, we include the date in the tools' version strings
(visible in 'ld -v' etc.) because people build binutils from a
variety of sources - git, tarballs, distro sources - and we want
something that can easily identify the source they used when they
report bugs. The bfd version plus date is usually good enough for
that purpose.
During development, this date ends up in libbfd and libopcodes
sonames because people naturally expect shared libraries with the
same soname to have compatible ABIs. We could bump the bfd version
on every ABI change, but that's just another thing contributors and
maintainers would need to remember. Instead, it's much easier for
all if the soname contains the date. This is not perfect but is
good enough.
In releases, the date is not included in either version strings or
sonames. */
