It's a mistake since it's part of the develop report, I don't know if
it's a problem in the regression scripts, or user error.

There's another thread about improving the information in the report,
which could include a link to github. But apparently I have to
implement it, which might not happen soon.

I could possibly improve the commit messages. An easy change would be
to include the submodule's branch (not the super-project's since
commits can appear on multiple branches), I might try doing that
