Yeah.. and I read the given bugzilla entry too:

raal, please provide either the commit message of the (last good)
commit in the bibisect repo directly preceding this commit, or at
least the URL of the bibisect repo (so I can determine that preceding
commit myself).  (Individual commits in bibisect repos often
correspond to a range of source commits, so it is always important to
know that full range.)

The FULL RANGE here is that single source commit:
commit from the bibisect commit 193ccffc25300d5c26e6f30ab06a2315b6bff879

and I know it is a single because it is the only one listed.. if there
was more than one source commit between this bibisect commit and the
previous bibisect commit they would all be listed there, as the
example earlier showed.

the format of my bibisect commit message is:

short message: "source sha:<sha>"  of the last source commit included
followed by a blank line
followed by the list of _all_ source sha included since the previous
bibisect commit (including the one on the short message line)
