Maybe I misunderstand something, but when I clone the haiku-central master 
master-39148-g206031c and make three local commits I get something like 
master-39151-g0329483, right? So that doesn't really tell us which 
haiku-central version my version is based on -- it could just as well be 5 
local commits after master-39146-... or 10000 local commits after
