Hi Juri,

It would be very useful to have the command to grep git logs,
for instance, to search commits by bug numbers in format "bug#36789"
and many other such use cases:

I like the idea.

+;; - log-search (pattern)
+;;   Search for PATTERN in the revision log.

Is pattern a regexp or a verbatim string? That should be documented. Git supports regexps, but maybe we should look at what other backends can support as well.

I wonder if the format of the output should be specified as well. E.g. by saying that it's the same as for print-log, long version.

+(defun vc-git-log-search (buffer pattern)
+  (vc-setup-buffer buffer)
+  (vc-git-command
+   buffer 'async nil
+   "log"
+   "--no-color" "-i" (format "--grep=%s" pattern)))

Should this use shell-quote-argument?
