RE: Merge commit log messages

Blame does indeed show me the revision number, and the comment for that
revision does tell us what revision numbers were merged (almost always), but
there's no way to automatically go find that. I have to open another
repo-browser, find the branch mentioned and do a blame there. Hey, I'm lazy.
I want to point and click!

Have you had a look at the Blame function? From that you can see who
most recently changed a given line of code. If that turns out to be a
merge, then you can jump over to the branch (by changing the URL and
revision) and do a Blame over there, if you've got multiple developers
committing to a single branch.
