Ha, English, my favorite part. When I was 10, I learned my first 2 sentences of 
1. Long life Chairman Mao!
2. Good morning comrade ... Gray

We are a worldwide community, please keep communication as simple as possible.

Good morning comrade everybody,

Shi Jinghai

主题: Re: Commit template, more flexibility [was Re: Put "Reverts" in the commit 


Reading your message I guess you did not read my previous explanation on why I 
prefer to use present instead of past. You may find more details in digging in 
previous emails.

But long story short, I'm French so I can't compete in English with someone 
like you for who English is the mother tongue.

The reason I use present is because I got this habit while working with Rupert 
Howell. You know, the guy who wrote the first OFBiz book. I don't reveal 
anything saying he is from Southampton (at least he lives there). I was then 
used to use past also in commit messages. A habit I got while seeing others 
committing in OFBiz. But when I saw Rupert  using present, it immediately made 
sense to me: at the moment you commit, you are doing an action. So I should use 
present, I'm doing the commit, it's not yet done.

I don't know if Rupert will read or appreciate this message, but it's the truth!

Anyway I believe it's a moot point, and we should have the freedom to write as 
we prefer, like it's done in a successful project like GitHub...
