I'd add a source of this data to the commit message, since we have the tuhs archive.
And it was also present in pdp7 unix, but there is no good way to call that out.

@imp I can't find the source code of the 1.0 release. The oldest version I found is release 2.0
That's what you want to have in the commit message?

Thanks for your help.

FreeBSD 1.x is a bit hard to fund due to AT&T lawsuits.
https://github.com/dspinellis/unix-history-repo
is a good source for historical releases, though it only has FreeBSD 1.0, not 1.1 nor 1.1.5

Wow ... well, it's a problem. I had read about FreeBSD's problems with the AT&T lawsuits. But do not think that for these problems the source code of version 1.0 did not exist as such.

So...

What could I put in the commit @imp ? Could you give me an example?

I'd look at any of my commit messages for history additions.

Some examples of what you can use for your work:

Obtained from: OpenBSD (verified with TUHS)

or

Consulting TUHS shows this was in the first edition.

or something similar. This allows others to verify too.
