  Subject: [git-users] Best way to "identify" a version of a repo

  I need to checkout code from a repo and somehow identify it (timestamp, hash, 
…) such that at some later time I can extract the SAME versions of all the code.

  I’m provisioning cloud instances, so each time would be a fresh “get clone” 
into an empty folder.  After I create the “master” (ie provision the FIRST 
instance) I need to record some way to identify it in case I have to recreate 
the master.I prefer NOT to alter the original repo (ie tag it), but prefer the 
‘work’ of identifying the sources to be done on the client side.

  Would appreciate any guidance!


Isn't the URL and sha1 sufficient? The URL gets you to the repo, and the sha1 
gets the commit. You add the output of `git describe` to give a bit of context.
