    '''Generate a v1 android:versionCode.

    The important consideration is that version codes be monotonically
    increasing (per Android package name) for all published builds.  The input
    build IDs are based on timestamps and hence are always monotonically

    The generated v1 version codes look like (in binary):

    0111 1000 0010 tttt tttt tttt tttt txpg

    The 17 bits labelled 't' represent the number of hours since midnight on
    September 1, 2015.  (2015090100 in YYYYMMMDDHH format.)  This yields a
    little under 15 years worth of hourly build identifiers, since 2**17 / (366
    * 24) =~ 14.92.

    The bits labelled 'x', 'p', and 'g' are feature flags.

    The bit labelled 'x' is 1 if the build is for an x86 architecture and 0
    otherwise, which means the build is for an ARM architecture.  (Fennec no
    longer supports ARMv6, so ARM is equivalent to ARMv7 and above.)

    The bit labelled 'p' is a placeholder that is always 0 (for now).

    The bit labelled 'g' is 1 if the build is an ARM build targeting API 15+
    and 0 otherwise, which means the build targets Android API 9-10 (Gingerbread).

    Fennec no longer supports Android API 8 or earlier. After Bug 1155801 it
    no longer supports API 11-14. API 9 is still supported due to significant usage.

    We throw an explanatory exception when we are within one calendar year of
    running out of build events.  This gives lots of time to update the version
    scheme.  The responsible individual should then bump the range (to allow
    builds to continue) and use the time remaining to update the version scheme
    via the reserved high order bits.

    N.B.: the reserved 0 bit to the left of the highest order 't' bit can,
    sometimes, be used to bump the version scheme.  In addition, by reducing the
    granularity of the build identifiers (for example, moving to identifying
    builds every 2 or 4 hours), the version scheme may be adjusted further still
    without losing a (valuable) high order bit.

        #'%Y%m%d%H%M%S'); see build/
