IPMI implementation of Get Device ID command

We have an implementation of this command
. The current version of the code derives the major and minor firmware
revision from the VERSION_ID field, and the auxiliary firmware revision
is picked from dev_id.json. The auxiliary firmware revision is populated
at build time
The implementation of the code is obsolete, as it was based on an
earlier format. The current format of VERSION_ID for example is,
2.9.0-dev-609-g56f86d23c. There is already a WIP patch to fix this for
the master tag format
IBM tagging format is different from the tag format of master builds.
One choice is to have the major and minor version added to the
dev_id.json and if the format of VERSION_ID does not match the master
tag format, pick from the json.
How are other companies converting their arbitrary tag formats to IPMI
firmware revision fields? Does every company maintain their own
downstream implementation of this command?
Is a common code possible for converting arbitrary tag formats to IPMI
firmware revision fields?
