At this time, there are revision numbers for each chapter (admin, devel, 
faq, ...) and they reflect svn commit revision for that specif file. 
Having up to 3 or 4 such numbers in same readme might be confusing. 
keeping one in the master, will not reflect changes, as module.xml is 
the less updated. Good alternative will be to find a way to add the svn 
revision at generation time (as we get it now with compilation of 
openser and it is reflected in openser -v). I think it is possible with 
xml, to give a parameter value in the command line (needs investigation).

It is what I think as well.
