It may be related to the fact that the git repository is made from the
public http repository, which is a mirror of the official repository
made with svnmirror (I think?) and that that mirroring thing was
dropping commit that had no files in them. (Aka forced commits.)

Things may have been fixed.

(It's the reason my fork[1] is not really a fork, it was redone using
repo.freebsd.org as its source)

Or maybe it is not related and I don't know what I'm talking about.
