track and report merge request IDs in commit history as a discrete field in the APIs
merge commits that are returned from the API should return the merge request ID as a discrete field, instead of being embedded in the message value.
Returns an example JSON fragment for merge commits:
"message": "Merge branch 'example' into 'master'\n\nChange the things\n\nSee merge request !123"
The problem is that I must string parse for the string
\n\nSee merge request !\d+ to get the merge request number. It would be much less error prone if the API returned an optional field for that "merge_request" number
If a commit came from a merge request, in addition to including the existing human readable message, include a field in the JSON response called
merge_request containing the merge request number.
