please do not use overly long titles for commit messages. The output of
the $ git log command otherwise gets difficult to read. For example,
commit 90decbde04c40593421779ec89f0265790d30e87 has a title consisting
of several sentences -- this should not be done. Please always use a
concise heading describing the change, and describe the changes in
detail (if required) after an empty line. This makes all tools
formatting commit messages work properly, which assume the entire first
line is the heading.
Read this if you are unsure about commit message guidelines:
(this link is the #1 result in Google if you search "how to write good
git commit messages" ;-))
I do not agree with the entire list of suggestions, but in general, they
are very sensible for anyone.
