Bug Description

For the bzr, I can link it to a bug with --fixes=lp:1484042 while committing changes, or manually link it later on the branch page.

But I can't do this with git, it will be great to have an equivalent feature with git, or even just with the capability to link bugs on the branch page.

Thanks

We'd like to do something about this, although we've yet to figure out exactly what. Git branches are often rather more ephemeral than Bazaar branches, and we're a little wary of putting overly-strong linkages into the database that could make them harder to delete. It might involve some combination of a commit scanner to scan for some kind of pattern in commit messages that identifies bugs (GitHub and other sites do something like this), or linking bugs to merge proposals rather than to branches.
