I've quickly reread the threads about stg commit. Am I right to assume that
_all_ history was being recorded? Because this is not what I want. The
person controlling the archive should specify when to record the history.

So for example, you only tag (freeze) the history when exporting the
patches.  When an error is being reported on that version, it's easy to view
it and also view the progress that was already been made on those patches.
