Are you asking about a *node*, or a *file*? A file's history is a
long series of nodes.

If you want to know when a file was first added to the repository, you
need to find some version of it (some node), and follow the links
backwards in time to previous versions of the node, until you find
the node that has no ancestor. Just as you describe.
