Actually, I would say this is exactly the sort of thing notes are for.

git.git uses them to map commits back to mailing list discussions:

    git fetch git://github.com/gitster/git +refs/notes/amlog:refs/notes/amlog &&
    git log --notes=amlog

See also notes.displayRef in git-config(1).

Notes aren't fetch by default, but it's not hard for those interested to
add a remote.*.fetch line to their config.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
