Oh my apologies; I missed the URL!!  (But Peff supplied it before I saw
this email!)

I don't know if they had a reflog on the server side; they used
client-side reflogs if I understood correctly.

I'm talking about server side (bare repo), assuming the site has
core.logAllRefUpdates set.

And I'll explain the "some circles" part as "something on LinkedIn".  To
be honest there's been a fair bit of FUDding by CVCS types there so I
stopped looking at the posts, but I get the subject lines by email and I
saw one that said "Git History Protection - if we needed proof..." or
something like that.

I admit I didn't check to see if a debate actually followed that post
:-)
