Ghost Revision

A ghost revision, also called a ghost, is a revision that a branch knows about but does not have.

Ghost revisions can occur in unusual situations such as the migration of branches from foreign revision control systems into Bazaar format.

Ghost revisions can be scary the first time that a user bumps into them. Thankfully though, revision ghosts are just like real ghosts (such as they are) in that their discorporeal existence typically causes little, if any, harm.
