but for assertions.
Git Notes (refs/notes/bugs)
There are special notes to annotate git commit messages with information
about "Fixes" and "cherry picked from". Annotating the history is useful
if it was not done initially because our scripts can make use of it.
The notes it are called "refs/notes/bugs".
So configure:
$ git config --add 'remote.origin.fetch' 'refs/notes/bugs:refs/notes/bugs'
$ git config --add 'notes.displayref' 'refs/notes/bugs'
For example, set notes with
$ git notes --ref refs/notes/bugs add -m "(cherry picked from $COMMIT_SHA)" HEAD
You should see the notes in git-log output as well.
To resync our local notes use:
$ git fetch origin refs/notes/bugs:refs/notes/bugs -f
