      Original request description:
      Smart commits is an excellent feature to link BitBucket commits - and the code changes - to JIRA issues. However, if a user forgets to add the issue key to the commit and then pushes upstream, it's very hard (without breaking the git repo for others) to add the issue key to the commit message. It would therefore be very useful to be able to manually link an earlier commit - and its code - to an existing JIRA issue, as if the issue key had been included in the commit message.

      The commit message doesn't need to be changed, but the code changes and commit ID should be added to the issue.
