There are files with four dotted decimal numbers in their names in the Documentation/RelNotes/ directory to help distro maintainers like you to figure it want. This is a tangent, but even with a project like git that is managed with a good use of topic branch workflow, we may want to have a way to reliably identify the tip of an ancient fix like this. People may be able to bisect down to 4682d85, and in this particular case, I happen to know that there wasn't any side-effect breakage introduced by that commit, but there needs to be an easy way (it can be expensive to compute) to make sure there is no follow-up fix to that particular commit. I can read "git rev-list --parents | grep -C3 $(git rev-parse 4682d85)" and then figure out what the children commits of that fix are, of course, but I suspect most people will view it as primitive ;-) -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
