Please never post links with a short hash.  Those *will* collide after a
while, making your link go stale.  Use at least ten chars, or twelve to
be save (and it is a nice round number).

Yeah, the 7 was just that it is what git describe prints by default,

IIRC git-describe will automatically increase the number of chars if there are collisions in the repository at a given number. But this of course doesn't help short hashes already published in an email, so I agree with Segher.

in the git-hooks tentative patch I've posted today it would use the
r10-1234 style ids in the subject (those will never collide) and in
the body the
style one.
