Once I enter into the logs for a repo from the status buffer (using ll) how do I search through the log buffer by username? Just using regular isearch doesn't seem to pick up the author names in the margin. I know I can limit the commits to just a particular user using shiftL=a but I really just want to search through the authors in the margin and see where a certain set of commits by an author are relative to the other commits.
Quoting an answer I got from the mailing list:
"If you set ++header in the log buffer, the fields specified by magit-log-revision-headers-format will be inserted in the log buffer. Author is included in the default value."
The solution was to essentially ignore the log margin and set the headers with -h, then search through the authors there.
