I guess that libjpeg-8 was cloned from libjpeg using ssh git at .... copy
So history truncation would require rewriting of master branch on
server, which is possible only for gitadmins.

??? It wouldn't work. git checkout sha1 would result and in detached
HEAD and subsequent git reset --hard wouldn't not update any branch.
If you want reset master to a different commit it should be:

git checkout master (if current branch is not master)
git reset --hard <commit>
