The Debian/Ubuntu builds utilize the revision *count*, that is, the number
of commits that have been made to each module.

You can get this number by using the following (nasty, complex, and
completely unobvious) command:
git shortlog . | grep -E '^[ ]+\w+' | wc -l

SVN was much easier in this regard. ;-)
