All right, that is a good plan.

Actually 20160921 is 8 characters, so assuming that '-' is treated
as word boundary by Perl, it is not a regression; this false positive
was there.  The new feature would help, instead of linking false match
it links whole git-describe output.

So this paragraph needs to be changed wrt. the above.

Note that there are quite a bit of shortened SHA-1 that are composed
entirely from digits, without a-f characters.

Hopefully hierarchical tags are rare.  We need to reduce false

Note that we do not ask Git at the time of displaying commit message
if the link is valid for performance reasons; we link it, and the link
may be invalid if it was a false positive.

Note that recommended way to refer to other commit in commit mesages
is (see Documentation/SubmittingPatches):

  If you want to reference a previous commit in the history of a stable
  branch, use the format "abbreviated sha1 (subject, date)",
  with the subject enclosed in a pair of double-quotes, like this:

     Commit f86a374 ("pack-bitmap.c: fix a memleak", 2015-03-30)
     noticed that ...

Hmmm... this makes previous commit even more important.

All right, for more complex regular expressions using in-line comments
(extended regexp in Perl) is a good idea.

If we can assume that tag name is at least two characters (instead of
at least one character), we could get rid of those extended regexp
lookaround assertions:

  (?<!pattern) - zero-width negative lookbehind assertion
  (?!pattern)  - zero-width negative lookahead  assertion

That is:

  +            [A-Za-z0-9.]   # see strbuf_check_tag_ref(). Tags can't start 
with -
  +            [A-Za-z0-9.-]*
  +            [A-Za-z0-9-]   # refs can't end with ".", see 

Also, the canonical documentation for what is allowed in refnames
is git-check-ref-format(1)... though it does not look like it includes
"tags cannot start with '-'".

Anyway, perhaps 'is it valid refname' could be passed to a subroutine,
or a named regexp (which might be more involved, like disallowing two
consecutive dots, e.g. "(?!.*\.{2})" at beginning).

> +            -g[0-9a-fA-F]{7,40}

If we are limiting to git-describe output, we can get rid of A-F here.

Good work. 

I assume that you are using git-describe output in commit messages
a lot, isn't it?
