I've published my first artifact to bintray, using an SBT project.
However if I ever run into the scenario where I'd like to see the actual code accompanying the binaries, I would have to do the following:
Instead of the above, I would preferably like to know the git commit used to create the artifact, then I could check out that commit in my already configured IDE and/or original source directory. Is this use-case catered for?
You could use git tags to mark commits with the release number/version. Per instance, if you are releasing version 1.0.0 you can create a tag v1.0.0. sbt-release helps you to automate the process.
