To log the revision flink-runtime creates a .version.properties file using the git-commit-id-plugin that is stored within the jar.
Here's an example:
most of this information isn't used, as flink-runtime only access git.commit.id.abbrev and git.commit.time.
The build, remote and branch information should be removed as they are neither relevant, nor consistent, as releases can be created on any branch, under any git alias, against any remote.
To exclude properties we have to bump the plugin version to 2.1.9.
