Even if we could rely on a date (which we can't), that would give you
the starting point. the bisection after that is just
a bisection of the commit between that point and HEAD (usually)
the problem is that we have commit scattered across 20 git repos... so in order
to truly bisect, we need an extra layer to 'serialized' all the commit
from all the git repos, and then bisect that series of commit
