[Geany-devel] Geany Plugins SVN Commit URLs

I haven't heard too much about the Git conversion of Geany Plugins, but 
I wanted to offer a suggestion that might improve the commit messages 
compared to Geany's.  In the Geany's Git repository there's links back 
to the SVN repository in the commit messages (the links are broken BTW). 
  I was wondering if it would be better to have these links point to a 
place we have more control over, for example using a Geany commit, 
instead of this in the commit message:

git-svn-id: https://geany.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/geany/trunk@5970 

We could have something like this:


That way we could make the links work and be able to move the old SVN 
repository without breaking all the links in the commit message. I guess 
we'd need a little redirect script or something on geany.org.  Note also 
the use of Markdown link syntax, which might render better on Github 
(not sure).

I guess it's too late to do this for Geany's Git repository, but we 
could maybe consider something like this for Geany Plugins if the 
software can support it?

Just an idea.
