Yeah I'd thought of that years ago when I designed the system; there is no
technical reason I can't but I didn't do so back then as I suspected it
would clutter up the page and make it needlessly hard to use.  I don't
think this has changed; for the packaging and repositories cgit has very
nice summaries and logs:

In comparison this is what the main repository shows up as in cgit (i.e.
the fundamental reason why the patches page has to exist at all):

Would it help to add links to the other two repositories to the sidebar
navigation on the main site, and possibly rename "Commit History" to
"Source Commit History" then add "Packaging Commit History" etc.?
