+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Assemblies default build and revision numbers.
+Description of Problem:
+When an assembly has the AssemblyVersion attribute with a wildcard in the 
+version number (for example [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.2.*")]), then 
+the build and/or revision number should be generated automatically at 
+compile time.  
+In the .NET Framework, the default build number is the number of days 
+since Jan 1, 2000, and the default revision number is the number of 
+seconds since midnight or something like that.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. add [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.2.*")] in an assembly's source code,
+2. compile the assembly,
+3. check the assembly's version number
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+Something like 1.2.1292.21964
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Note the other possible usage of the automatic version numbering:
+[assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.2.*.3")] and
+[assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.2.438.*")]
