+# Index commit messages
+* tags: enhancement
+Currently, we only index issues and other documents. We could also index commit messages. If a project is in the habit of writing long detailed story-like commit messages, this feature could be very useful. I have always been frustrated by the lack of stemming when searching commit messages with git log --grep.
+If we can index commit messages, could we even index commit diffs and source files as well? Perhaps there is something about source code that makes it harder to index?
