Generates a file with your apps name, version and build date
Generates a file with your package name, version and build date.
The intention of this module is to provide insight into when a certain version of an app was deployed (typically web apps).
For example, lets say you are working on a team of where not everyone has access to the source code or the ability to trigger deployments (like designers, testers, marketers, project managers, etc).
At some point, one of these folks might need to know when the latest version of something was deployed (either to answer a customers question or compare environments or what have you).
By taking a glace and the version.txt file in their browser, they can quickly get that type of information with out having to disrupt the busy developers or waiting for somebody to get back to them.
