[Python-Dev] hg.python.org issue: log page entries don't always link to revision

On hg.python.org, it seems like the entries on the "log" page don't
always link to the corresponding revision:
This seems to happen whenever the revision description begins with
text that results in a link to something else (e.g. an issue number),
"Issue #15822: Fix installation of lib2to3 grammar pickles to ensure."
In contrast, the "graph" page seems always to link to the revision:
Related to this, if the description field contains text that results
in a link to something else, then the UI doesn't make a distinction
between the portion of the description that links to the revision and
the portion that links to the something else.
For example, with description text "Fix for fcc629208842", "Fix for"
links to the revision for the log entry, but "fcc629208842" links to
the named revision, and there is no separation or visual indicator
that the two portions of text link to different things.
It might be better if the revision link was separate from the
description text. That would be one way to address both of the issues
