Description

In order for Plumage to know that Parrot has been upgraded by some external method (manual build, system packages, binary installer, etc.), each build of parrot (note: build, *not* configure) should have a GUID/UUID that is readable from NQP/PIR -- this UUID might be available in interpinfo for instance.
