The Testing summary has a table, which has a "Build Revision" column. 
For example at 

Would that be a proper place for the commit SHA?

In testSummary.html I see build.update.revision, and 
build.update.revisionurl, at 
  Does this mean that we could pass the GitHub URL of the commit to 
CDash, so that it would be placed onto the Test Summary?

If so, can you please tell us how to pass this information to CDash?
