This information below is what is presented in my patched Emacs. Does
that seems enough? (The information is fetched as I described before
in this thread.)

This Emacs was built from sources in bazaar identified as:

Nick 'trunk' info:
  revision id: address@hidden
        revno: 101040
         date: 2010-08-10 11:58:15 +0200

Nick 'emacsw32' (from 'trunk') info:
  revision id: address@hidden
        revno: 99334
         date: 2010-08-10 17:14:36 +0200
