Dear git folks,

there are people out there disliking elaborate commit messages, as going
over `git log` is tedious as you have to scroll a lot. As I do not like
the suggestion to make commit messages shorter by omitting certain
details, a way to limit the number displayed lines of the commit
messages would be nice to have.

The switch `--format=oneline` exists already. Unfortunately a lot of
commits do not have a informative enough summary, so the first lines of
the commit message are still needed/desired to understand the commit
more.

Could a switch be added, like `--commit-message-lines` (sorry for not
coming up with something better) to limit the number of displayed lines?
That would be great!

For older git versions, do you know of editor/pager options to achieve
this?


Thanks,

Paul
