The Best Answer is


To reference a commit, simply write its SHA-hash, and it'll automatically get turned into a link.

Answer above is missing an example which might not be obvious (it wasn't to me).

Url could be broken down into parts
                  \_____/\________/       \_______________________________________/
                   |        |                              |
            Account name    |                      Hash of revision
                        Project name              

Hash can be found here (you can click it and will get the url from browser).

Hope this saves you some time.
