Someone needs to have the Packman packager talk to the Fedora or the
Ubuntu packagers to see how to build a package that properly reports the
version information. IIRC, they run a sed script before the build that
puts the SVN revision in.

The supported way of fixing it is to use mythtv-setup. Worst case,
install it (all of, what, 10MB or so) and uninstall when done.

I doubt it's that. It's almost definitely the fact that you haven't
configured the remote frontend.

Other than the fact that it doesn't have the SVN revision in it, no. :)

Again, I'm pretty sure you just need to properly configure the remote
