The Installation Wizard reports the platform (or core) version ID as the OpenMRS Version in big text at the top. When installing the Reference Application this becomes very confusing.
One solution would be to report that it is OpenMRS Core version x.x.x or OpenMRS Platform x.x.x. An alternate and better solution would be to add a mechanism for a distribution version ID to be reported.
I saw this in version 2.0.5 but suspect it is in. all versions since the reference app version id became independent of the platform/core version.
I think the quick fix is in this file and/or in the message.properties files: https://github.com/openmrs/openmrs-core/blob/2.1.2/web/src/main/resources/org/openmrs/web/filter/initialization/header.vm
