[Fixes #608] Adds the option to change the length of the abbreviated commit SHA #611
I am working on a documentation project that I have made a spreadsheet planner for, and entering the ID of the latest commit touching a given feature is required. Since the project is on GitLab, and said Git host has 8-character-long commit abbreviations, I have gotten used to the 8-character length. However, while pasting the commit ID from GitLens, I was surprised to find that it was only 7, which also frustrated me. This PR aims to allow the user to change the length of the abbreviated commit SHA, and relieve the frustration caused by inconsistencies in abbreviated commit ID length across multiple Git clients/hosts/software.
