There is no way to add properties to the commit header, they are set in
stone and to be used only for vital Git metadata. The best way to
achieve what you want is to simply have something like
at the bottom of the commit message, or [bug] on the first line
beginning. You can help pre-fill this by a commit message template and
guard for its presence using hooks.
