Maybe you should try a different approach: Why do the auditors don't
have or want access to the repo? May read-only copy of the repo to
access offline a solution? If the auditors just need the info about
who changed what as inline comments in the source, because they aren't
allowed to access the repo or else devil himself will kill the world
;-), how about a process generating what they need as an on demand
process? They need access to the code somehow in any way, maybe you
could create the view your client wants as a part of some export or
preparation process using the source code repo you seem to have access
to? You could even build some nice little GUI especially for the
auditors if your client pays well and in time. ;-)

Focusing on specially formatted commits or stuff like that may not be
the only solution.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
