Searching git commits by user doesn't work

Robert Gay
created an issue

Searching mercurial repositories on bitbucket by user (e.g.: user('Robert Gay') ) seems to work as expected, but attempting a commit search in a git repository by user doesn't return any results.

Examples:

git (no results): https://bitbucket.org/lmnd/gentoo-x86/commits/all/tip/user('William%20Hubbs')

hg (results): https://bitbucket.org/pypy/pypy/commits/all/tip/user('Stefano%20Rivera')

    The search backend is different between hg and git. This is something we delegate to the SCM. Hence, for mercurial you get all the power of its advanced search criteria, while for Git we return the result of git log --grep.
