parse-revision-specification stringprocedure

Attempts to parse a string as a Git revision specification, returning two values:

  • If string specifies a range of revisions, the start and end commit objects.
  • If string specifies a single revision, the commit object and #f.
  • If string is invalid or fails to match a revision, #f for both values.
