Index commit messages

Currently, we only index issues and other documents. We could also index commit messages. If a project is in the habit of writing long detailed story-like commit messages, this feature could be very useful. I have always been frustrated by the lack of stemming when searching commit messages with git log --grep.

If we can index commit messages, could we even index commit diffs and source files as well? Perhaps there is something about source code that makes it harder to index?


Commit messages are now indexed. We can revisit indexing commit diffs and source code later, if need be.
