Thanks for working on this.
Could you include a little more detail? What other hints is this
making the message more consistent with?
Ideally the commit message would include a quick sample interaction,
so the reviewer could see the user going "Wha?" and then look at the
patch to see how it resolves the confusion.

- The comma just moves the message closer to the right margin. I think
it makes the message less readable.
- What else would "git commit" do other than concluding the merge?
What confusion is this meant to prevent?
- Would introducing a new "git merge --continue" command help?
Advantages: (1) the name of the command makes it obvious what
it does; (2) the command could check that there is actually
a merge in progress, helping the user when the state is not
what they think; (3) consistency with "git cherry-pick --abort" /
"git cherry-pick --continue".
Disadvantage: redundancy (but see (2) above).
Hope that helps,
