To be clear, GitLab does cross-reference commits and tickets. I
completely agree that this is essential functionality.

What GitLab does not do is show the entire commit message in the
ticket. It merely adds a comment mentioning the SHA of the commit.
This looks something like this [1]:

    Ernestas Kulik mentioned in commit 70166550

I can see that having the text of the commit present in the ticket
itself may have value, however.
