Customization of log view

Hi everyone,

I couldn't find any information on this, so excuse me if you've heard this
question (or: request?) a gazillion times before.
We've been using cgit for Xfce for many years and we're really happy about
it. Recently we set up hooks to add references to related commits to
bugreports in our bugzilla instance. We also managed to make the bug
references in cgit's commit view hyperlinks to bugzilla, so those two parts
of our toolchain are more connected.

What would be a nice extra is having clickable bug links in the log view,
but I couldn't find any reference that that is currently possible. So first
of all: is it possible to customize the log view so that we can either make
the bug references clickable hyperlinks (appearance-wise similar to the
branch and tag references) directly or e.g. add a new column with the
And if it currently isn't possible, is this a feature/option you would also
be interested in supporting?

Finally I'm grateful about any pointers as to how to get going in that


PS: Here's an example of the status quo (bug link in commit view, i.e. the
blue box)
You can also see the comment that was added by our git-hook to bugzilla
when following the buglink.
