Those updates actually came from when the project was hosted in subversion. The
update stream is sort of an "append-only" view of project history; we don't really go
back and attempt to reconcile them with later events.

It does lead to strange results, though, in cases like this. If we were to fix
autolinking to be aware of the repository type, those obsolete revisions would at
least no longer be linked.

Easier might be to keep working on the project until those updates fall off the page ;-).

Couldn't we still allow browsing of the old repo so that the links would work?  There
could be references to them in issues, wiki pages, and other revision commit logs.
