JENKINS-26568: New accumulated commit message:
The accumulated commit strategy is now using a commit message that is
almost identical to the squash commit message. It includes the commit
message of every included commit.

Implementation change details:

- Fixed the callback method, by limiting JGit tree walk to only work on
  branch and ignore master. That is, master commits are not collected
  and the tree walk stops.

- Minor helper method implemented in TestUtilsFactory that can count
  commits on a branch.

- All tests are moved to its own class, and there are tests written for
  a series of common cases. Each test case verifies selected text
  strings are in the new commit message.
