Are you sure? I think what the others are trying to tell you is that the repository does not store this information, so there is not a way that any client could return this information to you without doing an exhaustive search.

Alternately, you could construct a database that you maintain parallel to the repository, containing any information you would need to answer whatever queries you find important. You would keep this database updated in a post-commit hook, for example.
