In any case I don't think this fulfils the initial question.  Previously we could say to users that an issue was 
fixed in svn r nnnn and they would "know" that any rev later than that was good.  I don't understand how they can 
"know" that with a SHA of the latest master commit | merge.

That'd require a commit identifier where, on any given branch in the official repository, given the identifiers for two 
commits, it's easy to determine which commit is later.  That's true of SVN revision numbers, as they're time-ordered, 
but it's not true of SHA hashes for Git commits.
