GitHub stores commit messages in the .git directory of the repository, which contains all the information related to the repository, including commits, branches, and tags. Each commit is assigned a unique identifier (SHA-1 hash), and the commit message is stored as part of the commit object. Additionally, GitHub also provides a user-friendly interface for viewing and searching commit messages on its website.
