Hi fellow developers,

more or less we tend to stick to the tradition of linking Trac tickets
to the commit messages of the patches we send to the list.

However, every now and then, a patch lands on the list, which is either
linked to a BZ or does not contain any link at all. Admittedly, I am
also guilty of this mishap. This poses certain problems, as we're trying
to automate the bookkeeping and pushing-related processes with ipatool [1].

Nevertheless, this useful habit is not formally agreed upon by
developers nor documented in our wiki [2]. I'd suggest we add it there,
if we come to such consensus.

This would mean:
* Patches fixing an issue described only in BZ (rare issue) would need
to create a Trac ticket referencing the BZ
* Patches fixing an issue not tracked in Trac nor BZ would need to file
a ticket in Trac and reference it
