the problem is that this 'time' is not recorded anywhere. git does not
keep track of it.
So the only way to be 'certain' is to use sha1 and git log to compare
where the sha1 of the build you test is compared to the dha1 of the
alledge fix.

It is possible to do a web service to automate that (that is giving 2
sha1s and it tell you if the second one (the fix) is an 'ancestor' of
the first one (your build)

essentially:  if $(git merge-base <build-sha> <fix-sha>) = <fix-sha>
