	So - I assume this is generated from a git log command. Unfortunately
the onegit merge makes it ~impossible to get a sane git log from our
previous release tags. As you go over the mergepoint we end up with all
the merged commits from the other branches :-)

	Luckily, I spent quite some time fixing this already for our commit
statistics (which were also busted by this). So
gitdm-config/analyse_commits has a chunk of perl that:

	* fetches git notes
	* parses all note comments to find the per repo. merge
	* runs log commands between the relevant tags
	  per repository from each repo's start-point[1]
	  to the pre-merge-point, and from post-mergepoint to now

	It is not entirely trivial ;-) it's prolly worth taking the above list
down until we have something more accurate, which may take some time.



[1] - adapting analyse_commits to work only on log messages, and to work
instead from a repo-specific version tag on each branch is prolly fairly
