Ow, that's bad. :/

We do have such guarantees. Alex has promised to keep old commits for some period of time (at least two months; I think I even heard six months? I don't remember the exact time guarantee). But if we leave old hashes there indefinitely, like we've been doing, then yes they will eventually break. Like anything, they have to be maintained.

If you remove the hashes, then we'll all have different development environments and won't be able to have reproducible tests, so we'll never be able to get rid of the jhbuild.
