I've been trying that.  It's not been working well.

That is not true.  A policy decision could be taken now to apply to
future commit references.  I can understand you not wanting to lay down
such a policy, however.

I will continue to supply information such as date and commit message
whenever I refer to a git commit, out of courtesy  and consideration for
the people who will read my post.  They will then immediately know what
I'm talking about, and have enough details to decide whether to look up
the commit in git.

Conversely, I will feel free to ignore a bare git commit hash, for
example when I'm tired, or feeling harrassed, or the tone of the post
containing it is unfriendly, or, quite bluntly, when I just can't be
