No you didn't forget, I see several:


But in the original mail Eric was wanting to refer to a specific
Bitkeeper revision using the BK revision id, eg:

  Fixes: BKrev: 3e8e57a1JvR25MkFRNzoz85l2Gzccg ("[PATCH] linux-2.5.66-signal-cleanup.patch")

In your tree that is c3c107051660 ("[PATCH] linux-2.5.66-signal-cleanup.patch"),
but you don't have the 3e8e57a1JvR25MkFRNzoz85l2Gzccg revision recorded
anywhere that I can see.
