Linking merged pull requests from commits

We’ve been including the containing branches and tags on commit pages to give you more context around changes. Now, commits in a repository’s default branch will also show you the pull request that introduced them.

no touching

In the pull request, you can see the discussion around why the commit was introduced, and get a clearer picture of the reason for the change.

As always, if you know the commit SHA, you can skip the commit page and search for the pull request directly.
