clickable URLs in commit descriptions

in log view / details window make URLs of commit message clickable to be opened in default web browser

I believe this is already possible via the Bugtraq integration: http://www.syntevo.com/doc/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=1704589

We've been using this to turn references to bug numbers and code review IDs into clickable links in the commit messages log/details windows

Fits well with a guideline of having full URL and not only issue number.

From https://robots.thoughtbot.com/5-useful-tips-for-a-better-commit-message

"5. Consider making including a link to the issue/story/card in the commit message a standard for your project. Full urls are more useful than issue numbers, as they are more permanent and avoid confusion over which issue tracker it references.

This is generally done as the first paragraph after the summary, on line 3."
