Though I can't address your idea of creating links to git revisions (I
believe this idea was discussed here recently), you might want to check
out org-attach.el as a way of pulling all relevant files into a git

Org attach can "attach" files to headlines by giving them a universal id
and depositing them (or a link to them) in a directory of your choice
(see the variable "org-attach-directory"). If the attachment directory
contains is controlled by git, org-attach will automatically check them
into the repo. So perhaps org-attach is already part of the way towards
the solution you're looking for.

I can't say that this statement matches my own experience. I find emacs
and git integration to be superb. Any time I'm working intensively on
one of my org-files, I simply use vc-next-action (C-x v v) to check in
recent changes. Also I make heavy use of vc-log, vc-annotate, vc-diff,
etc. to survey changes to a file.

I also highly recommend magit. It makes it very easy to manage all
recent uncommitted changes to a git repo. Thanks to magit and vc-git, I
almost never use the command line managing git repositories. In fact,
I've come to see magit as an essential part of my work process -- i.e.,
as a way of reviewing and logging things I've worked on recently
(usually every hour or so).

That said, I think it would be nice to be able to create links to
particular git commits.
