Currently we just show the git checkout crash:

$> datalad rerun --since=HEAD^^^ --onto=replicate
CommandError: command '['git', '-c', 'receive.autogc=0', '-c', 'gc.auto=0', 'checkout', '--detach', 'replicate']' failed with exitcode 128
Failed to run ['git', '-c', 'receive.autogc=0', '-c', 'gc.auto=0', 'checkout', '--detach', 'replicate'] under '/tmp/QA-replication'. Exit code=128. out= err=fatal: git checkout: --detach does not take a path argument 'replicate'

fatal: git checkout: --detach does not take a path argument 'replicate'

without all the result records with error (or impostsible?) status etc. So I wonder if we should first verify that commitish is "legit" and if not blow "our way"?

We check that the commit specified for --onto exists when we
automatically set onto in the --onto='' case.  We should do the same
when an --onto value is explicitly given because it may not exist,
which leads to 'git checkout' failing with an unclear message:

  fatal: git checkout: --detach does not take a path argument '<onto value>'

Fixes datalad#3019.

 A variety of bugfixes and enhancements

 ### Major refactoring and deprecations

 - All extracted metadata is now placed under git-annex by default.
   Previously files smaller than 20 kb were stored in git. ([#3109])
 - TODO: get_runner #3104 and pending #3131

 ### Fixes

 - Improved handling of long commands:
   - The code that inspected `SC_ARG_MAX` didn't check that the
     reported value was a sensible, positive number. ([#3025])
   - More commands that invoke `git` and `git-annex` with file
     arguments learned to split up the command calls when it is likely
     that the command would fail due to exceeding the maximum supported
     length. ([#3138])
 - The `setup_yoda_dataset` procedure created a malformed
   .gitattributes line. ([#3057])
 - [download-url] unnecessarily tried to infer the dataset when
   `--no-save` was given. ([#3029])
 - [rerun] aborted too late and with a confusing message when a ref
   specified via `--onto` didn't exist. ([#3019])
 - [run]:
   - `run` didn't preserve the current directory prefix ("./") on
      inputs and outputs, which is problematic if the caller relies on
      this representation when formatting the command. ([#3037])
   - Fixed a number of unicode py2-compatibility issues. ([#3035]) ([#3046])
   - To proceed with a failed command, the user was confusingly
     instructed to use `save` instead of `add` even though `run` uses
     `add` underneath. ([#3080])
 - Fixed a case where the helper class for checking external modules
   incorrectly reported a module as unknown. ([#3051])
 - [add-archive-content] mishandled the archive path when the leading
   path contained a symlink. ([#3058])
 - Following denied access, the credential code failed to consider a
   scenario, leading to a type error rather than an appropriate error
   message. ([#3091])
 - Some tests failed when executed from a `git worktree` checkout of the
   source repository. ([#3129])
 - During metadata extraction, batched annex processes weren't properly
   terminated, leading to issues on Windows. ([#3137])
 - [add] incorrectly handled an "invalid repository" exception when
   trying to add a submodule. ([#3141])
 - Pass `GIT_SSH_VARIANT=ssh` to git processes to be able to specify
   alternative ports in SSH urls

 ### Enhancements and new features

 - [search] learned to suggest closely matching keys if there are no
   hits. ([#3089])
 - [create-sibling] gained a `--group` option so that the caller can
   specify the file system group for the repository. ([#3098])
 - Interface classes can now override the default renderer for
   summarizing results. ([#3061])
 - [run]:
   - `--input` and `--output` can now be shortened to `-i` and `-o`.
     ([#3066])
   - Placeholders such as "{inputs}" are now expanded in the command
     that is shown in the commit message subject. ([#3065])
   - `interface.run.run_command` gained an `extra_inputs` argument so
     that wrappers like [datalad-container] can specify additional inputs
     that aren't considered when formatting the command string. ([#3038])
   - "--" can now be used to separate options for `run` and those for
     the command in ambiguous cases. ([#3119])
 - The utilities `create_tree` and `ok_file_has_content` now support
   ".gz" files. ([#3049])
 - The Singularity container for 0.11.1 now uses [nd_freeze] to make
   its builds reproducible.
 - A [publications] page has been added to the documentation. ([#3099])
 - `GitRepo.set_gitattributes` now accepts a `mode` argument that
   controls whether the .gitattributes file is appended to (default) or
   overwritten. ([#3115])
 - `datalad --help` now avoids using `man` so that the list of
   subcommands is shown.  ([#3124])
