"HEAD" is not a valid commit!

Post by Rachael »

If you are self-compiling and reporting bugs, please post the commit hash.

If you are unsure, simply type "git describe --tags" in your source tree. Or type "git rev-parse HEAD". If using a devbuild, simply open your INI and copy the first line.

Use whichever format you like best. Either way though, don't use "HEAD".

The same applies to "latest", "current", "March 13th", and so on. A commit time has nothing to do with a push time, they are unrelated.
Commit hashes exist for this reason, to uniquely identify the state of source code.
You want to point to a particular commit, post a hash, or better insert a GitHub link to it.

I've noticed long ago that the master .zip files also contain a hash/code, would that be useful too?

Yes. If you are compiling without Git and using the zip files instead, use the hash code for that zip - it can be found on the last commit message next to the zip download.

Ye, that's my preferred way of compiling at the moment, just downloading the master as a .zip then taking care of it. I'll provide it in my future bug reports :3: .
