You should have a look at too.

Not surprising actually: sealed revisions are version-X, and can't, by
definition, be a base-0.

FYI, Another commonly used solution is to have a separate project,
which contains one config file (input of build-config) for each

Normally, the tag should contain one more file, which is the added
patch-log entry for the tag ({arch}/bla-bla/...).

Since tla maintains a local cache (revision libraries, pristine
