#### Description

The automated time-stamping in our DM LaTeX workflows is generally based on the date of the last commit to the document repo.  The way the new automated workflows for test reports are now configured, the extraction from Jira to LaTeX is done via a manually-triggered step in the workflow.  Subsequent rebuilds of the document by CI workflows may happen on future dates, possibly far in the future (e.g., if we need to make a change to the LTD system and rebuild documents).  In order to avoid any implication that the Jira extraction was re-run as part of that workflow, I suggest that docsteady write the wall-clock time at which it was run into its LaTeX output.

I would suggest that this time stamp replace the use of \vcsDate in the document's \date header, and that we add a boilerplate sentence to the document like:

"This document is based on content automatically extracted from the Jira test database on (docsteady-run-timestamp).  The most recent change to the document repository was on \vcsDate."
