Unless you recreated the Git repo from scratch, you could find
clues about past versions used in .git/logs/HEAD.

Except if you used it to pull bits frequently - but built rarely
out of it. In that case the information is probably lost.

(Don't worry about it too much - someone will eventually hit it
again during bisection or so.)
