## Notes on Ancient History
LALSuite was transferred to git.ligo.org in December 2017. Older history has been imported, though commit hashes were rewritten during the GitLFS conversion. Please note:
1. The "Original: " commit IDs quoted in each commit message can be used to compare with the [archived reference repo](https://git.ligo.org/lscsoft/lalsuite-archive), old issue discussions on the [Redmine tracker](https://bugs.ligo.org/redmine/projects/lalsuite), review wiki pages etc.
1. Commits before December 2017 may also include references to issues ("#number"). These refer to the corresponding [Redmine issue](https://bugs.ligo.org/redmine/projects/lalsuite) (LVC-authorized access only), and any clickable link the internal gitlab web interface produces for those old commits will be spurious.
