Description (last modified by sebastian)

How to reproduce

Run ./ -t edge -b 1234 (or inspect the devbuild from the Windows Store)

Observed behaviour

The version attribute in the Identity node in AppxMainfest.xml is set to, while the version number given in the build's filename and manifest.json file includes the build number as 4th component.

The incomplete version number from AppxMainfest.xml also shows up in the Windows Store developer dashboard.

That is because the version given in the metadata file is overriding the final version number already given in params, when AppxMainfest.xml is generated.

Expected behaviour

AppxMainfest.xml and manifest.json should include the same version number, with the build number (provided by the -b option) in the 4th component.

For reference, while the version being truncated seem to have been an accident (or at least happened through a rather non-obvious coding practice), this is actually necessary due to restrictions of the Windows Store, see #5666. Also see #5668 for another related issue.
