Right, and that why we need the pinned-manifest.xml I guess. So the
idea would be:
Generate the pinned-manifest.xml
Build from the pinned-manifest.xml
If we like the build, we click save that commits the
pinned-manifest.xml and the whole thing gets a tag
We would have on linaro-master:
default.xml, *-stage.xml would be the tips and *-pinned.xml would get
commited to when we liked a build. We would know that the build was
exactly what we tested since we would have built from the
pinned-manifest.xml itself. During a save we would lay a tag down
like: 11.08-rc1, 11.08-rc2...and the final tag would be 11.08 which
may be coincident to an existing tag or may be a new point in time.
