What you can do when generating the report, is

1.) Change test testname description (plain text, links dont work).
You could use the genhtml option '-t' to let it read something like
'test: commit 3a393557152ec61ebfe75580db0a2e321febfda3' instead of

2.) create an 'prolog' htmlpage file and/or epilog htmlpage file, that
gets added to the top or the bottom of the homepage. You can put all
kind of fancy html in there, including the link you would like.

Of course, the right time to make use of these options is when you
generate the html from the code coverage files, and I already deleted
those, so I would have to run the entire build report again just to
change the test name description.

Ill add the sha commit ref to the description the next time I generate
a report though, and add that procedure to the wiki page. And if
someone is willing to write and add a fancy html footer including that
link, that would be great too.
