I realized some time ago that commit's comments can only contain links to issues and similars but nothing like bold/italics/bullet lists\inline code.
I think it could be useful to (optionally?)allow (some)Markdown on them. For example a commit message like:
Improved class ``SomeClass`` and fixed issue #53: - The ``this_method`` method now <something> - The class provides a new invariant ... - Refactored ``big_method``s code into two submethods ``submethod_a``, ``submethod_b``.
Would be rendered:
SomeClass and fixed issue
this_methodmethod now <something>
- The class provides a new invariant ...
big_methods code into two submethods
Is there a reason for not providing this feature?
Obviously I'm not saying to add markup to be rendered everywhere(e.g. in bitbucket's home where you see only the summaries of the commits), but in the deatiled view I think it would be simply fine to have.
