This has nothing to do with the Gerrit-Migration. Please see the project description at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/profile/9/ before adding tags. Removing.

@Paladox: There are steps. The current task description does not tell me where you expect some links. You did not provide any URLs that would allow someone else to reproduce or see what page you are looking at so it's impossible to know what *exactly* this task is about. Please always provide steps to reproduce as agreed on, and why you think that a different behavior would be useful, and what the current behavior is.

No we should not.

What I want to say though is: Without any arguments provided why it would help anyone or what the actual problem is, now there are only opinions in this task, but no facts to discuss.

@Aklapper well currently we use gerritbot to create a comment with the commit name and link to gerrit change when ever we do Bug: T1 for example. I would like the same to happen for differential when someone links to a change through Bug: T1 it should add itself as the commit.

You can manually associate via "Edit Related Objects... > Edit Revisions" and you could automatically associate (or even change task status) via commit message content, see https://secure.phabricator.com/T5132 .
If that is not sufficient, please provide specific situations and specific usecases that are not covered by those two options. "It would be good if" won't be a usecase. :)

@Aklapper thanks, just didn't know that phabricator supported that, so using Fixes: T1 for example will automatically add it to task?
