Link to GitLab commit on the Sentry error detail page
Problem to solve
With Continuous Delivery, a common way to name a Sentry Releases is with the SHA of the deployed commit. By following this standard, it is now possible to directly relate a Sentry error to a GitLab commit in GitLab. If we defined this as the expected process, we could use the Sentry Release name as our "suspect commit".
Linking a Sentry error directly to the commit that very recently generated the error gives the user the ability to immediately roll-back the change or fix the specific place in code causing the error and deploy a patch.

This work supports the Error Tracking Vision.
Parse the name of the Sentry release passed via the API to GitLab. Check to see if it matches any commit SHAs for the repo. If it matches, surface and link the GitLab commit in the error detail page. If it does not match any commits, do not show anything.
