Satchmo's current version function only works with svn. We need to update it to work with mercurial.

    Necessary condition to display the revision number is to use an alternative installation method described in the note section 2 installation instructions http://www.satchmoproject.com/docs/dev/new_installation.html .

    cited:
    An alternative to running the install is ensuring that /path/to/satchmo/apps is on your python path. You may do this by placing a symbolic link to the source, adding a .pth file that points to your /satchmo/apps location or modifying your PYTHONPATH environment variable.
    Hmm.. This text is for experts who can do this yourself without guidance.

    I added a note to http://bitbucket.org/chris1610/satchmo/wiki/Contributing_to_Satchmo because this is very important for new contributors. I did not know very long time, how to accept new changes without running installation script repeatedly :-))


    Please make corrections and remove eventually the point that this replaced.
