Git: add support for setting additional information via Git notes

Description (last modified by sa2ajj)

Git recently added support for commenting on commits via Git notes. I find it extremely useful, especially for systems like Buildbot.

It could be used for pushing back information about build status and URL for build results back to Git repository.

Feedback needed.

I like the idea conceptually, and it seems that if this were implemented as a separate step similar to the Source steps, then it could be done in a non-invasive way (that is, without bothering people who don't want to use the feature).

But if this would be implemented as a build step, then it wouldn't have result of whole build (because it wouldn't be finished yet). Am I correct?

Correct. Even so, that's easy to implement without causing compatibility problems, so great!

I wonder how this is related to Gerrit: to the best of my knowledge Gerrit does not use notes.
