Versioning and Dependencies:Here's an example why the above procedure (i.e., strict & lock-step
versioning) is important:
When looking at a particular commit in edk2, for example for backporting
purposes, or else when looking at the whole edk2 tree *at* a particular
commit, it must be clear to the reader what basetools *state* was able
to build that commit / that tree, at the time. Because then the reader
will also be able to either backport the necessary basetools patches
too, or else (perhaps more simply) upgrade their separate basetools
component to that particular version.
So, I agree with the suggested workflow, I just wanted to emphasize how
important it is.
