Please support git notes

Git notes allow users to attach bits of metadata to git objects without changing them. So, for example, your build system might attach the results of running a build to a commit, or you might attach code review comments to a commit. Right now Sourcetree doesn't offer any way of viewing or editing these notes, which is unfortunate, since there are lots of interesting uses for notes.

I would love it if ST would add support for at least viewing notes that exist on commits, since they are typically used to augment the history of the project. (As a technical detail, I believe all notes should be shown, as though --notes-ref=* were passed to the git notes command.) It would also be nice to support adding new notes, though I wouldn't consider that critical.

Thanks, and keep up the good work!

Has this suggestion be incorporated into ST yet?
