First let me second Tobias's vouch for Tom. After that, the above
remark triggered my sensitive side. ;-)

Can you tell us what exactly you tried to do to find the last-working versions?

In general, git is made for just these things and does not prevent
them, and works reliably. So I suspect there may be a problem with the
tools in Squeak around it (e. g. Metacello or the
download-repository-Monticello-adpaters involved). For example,
Metacallo sometimes needs some extra steps in a git-hosted project to
be able to update (or downgrade) it through Metacello. Or everything
worked as intended but it just did not solve your problem because it
was not related to a broken Metacello, as Tobias discussed with you,
we'll see.

Kind regards,
