Bug Description

In the web view of revisions in a branch, eg <> it would be nice to also link to the merge proposal that (probably) led to a branch landing, eg adding something like

  from _proposal_

or something like that.

Typically the mp will be in state 'merged' by the time we get here so seeing the state is not so useful. I think the main thing is to get to the mp; second most interesting maybe to see who approved it; third perhaps to see the votes (but often there are outdated votes and seeing them is noise.)

Ian pointed out that the link all already go to the mp, not to the branch. (They're all oopsing so I didn't see that.)

It's a inconsistent with the rest of lp for a link whose text is the branch name to actually go to an mp. One way to handle that would be to just hyperlink the whole phrase 'merged branch lp:....'

I agree. This could be done easily just by how it is phrased.
