Sorry, but the SW build system is the wrong place to generate the
versioned artefact.

I agree. But again you hard-code your versioning scheme instead of
letting the user decide what versioning scheme is appropriate for
his/her use case when she/he exports the build artefact from the
automated build system to his/her "versioned storage system".

This new patch set (with small improvements) is acceptable and I will
not vote against it.

But IMHO the implemented functionality is pretty useless, i.e. all SDK
users will switch to 'prepare-sdk' instead.
