Dear Imperial College London,
Question with respect to the COVID-19 model developed by the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.
I am aware that a 'partial' git repository has been made available at
Unfortunately for accountability, this git repository is insufficient. Git version control gives a history of code changes, unfortunately, Imperial has intentionally released their code with no prior history.
For this, I refer to
The commit marked 'Squash history for public release'
The act of squashing takes all prior changes and merges them into one commit, hence removing all history.
I request that in the public interest and to ensure public trust, you release all prior history (unredacted/unsquashed) of the Covid19 model in a git repository.
Dear Mr Narwan,
This is to acknowledge receipt of your request below, made under the Freedom of Information Act. The College will respond to your request by 22 June.
