I can't. The existing links are where the committer mentioned a bug 
number, or Justin and I knew the numbers already. Searching bugzilla is 
your best bet.

Agreed - automation would be welcome. Making sure committers note 
bugzilla numbers would be very useful start. Secondarily, they should 
consider a git commit that's intelligible to someone who hasn't read the 
code diff. The best automatic solution I could suggest would be a perl 
script to postprocess a git log. That'd still have to go up on a wiki 
after editing by hand, though.
