It’s pretty easy to link directly to a line of code in your GitHub repo:
Don’t do that you naughty sausage! Your codebase will evolve (if all goes well), and line 16 will be replaced by a newer, shinier string of characters. Or, in this case, it’ll point to something that no longer exists.
This, on the other hand, is more likely to stick around to haunt its author (me):
Select a tag before you link to your fancy code (“Switch Tags” under GitHub‘s “Source” menu).
