2147483647, i.e. slightly more than 2 billion.

That's assuming you are using a 32bit machine, of course.

So, if you make 1 commit every second without pause, that will last you
until the year 2073, by which time, it's a fairly safe bet that you will
have moved on to a 64bit machine, and can enjoy the freedom to have up to 9
quintillion revisions.
