Actually, since git v2.11 (released Nov 29, 2016), abbrev = auto (which
is the default) means that the default scales with the size of the
repository. For Linus' tree, that currently produces 12 digit commit
SHA1 abbreviations, but will probably soon become 13. So the best
currently, is to *not* set core.abbrev (or set it to something above 12
(for future robustness).
