if possible try to determine which commit fixed the issue the
reproducer triggered.

You can potentially bisect with the reproducer on the git history or
you can simply look in the git log of the affected files if someone
mentioned fixing something related to the trigger.

That helps to make sure we do not just close reproducers that just
need a lot of time, configuration or luck to hit a certain crash.
