Subject: [Boost-build] meaning of "rev" in test report

the test report matrix reports a "rev" attribute for each test run,
presumably showing a git SHA. However, I'm somewhat doubtful about what
repository that is referring to. For example I'd expect the revs in
correspond to SHAs in the https://github.com/boostorg/python repo.
However, I can't seem to find a single match, i.e. none of the SHAs I
see in the matrix appears in my git log.
If that's not the repo whose revision is being reported, which repo is
being used ? And how can I map that to the revision of the module being
tested (Boost.Python in this case) ?
(The reason I'm asking is that now that the NumPy tests trickle in, I
see a bunch of failures, but looking at the error I notice an issue I
fixed a week (or so) ago, yet the test runs are more recent than that. I
think it's crucial for the test report to give a clear indication of the
tested module's SHA to make it possible to attempt to reproduce the
