It's true that not all of the parent hashes could be identical. dgit imports orig tarballs in a way that is supposed to produce a stable commit hash for each tarball, so that different revisions of the same upstream version have the upstream as a common ancestor. Does Nish's importer try to generate a fast-forwarding upstream branch ? If not then part of the imported commit structure could be the same.
