I don't think you can, you can see pushes elsewhere. My point was that
the super project's commits are a reliable way to deal with this. I
have half a plan to make the commit messages better which should help,
it will need to maintain a full mirror on the server though.

That command is more for scripting purposes than for your use, but I
think you can use:

git show --pretty="format:%cd" -s HEAD

But you might find it more useful to just use the more verbose version
of 'git log':

git log --format=fuller
