Revisions walker: Add notification for truncated/shallow histories
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It might exists some rare cases where a revision's parent is referenced but doesn't exist in the archive
which results in a truncated/shallow history when walking on the revisions graph.

Changes introduced in D1424 will guarantee that revision walkers will not end up in error when encountering such cases.

Nevertheless, being notified that the returned history is invalid would be of interest. We should find a way to
implement that behavior.
