	Ah ! this was my missing piece :-) so your approach sounds much better

	Strangely my 'git notes get-ref' doesn't exist:

$ git notes get-ref
error: Unknown subcommand: get-ref

	Otherwise it sounds like this'd be ideal ( I have git ).

	Sure; so it sounds like as/when people's git's are upgraded, this would
be much faster and cleaner than grepping the whole log output thus:

	hash=`git log --pretty='%H %N' | grep 'win32 working build' | head -n1 | sed 's/ win32.*//'`

	And presumably we should be using a namespace for that too in the most
recent notes impl.

	Anyhow - I pushed something that works as of now; we just need someone
to insert the best note they can as/when a build really builds [ pending
the dependency fix for the manifest file I guess ].

	Thanks !
