FWIW, I'm a bit suspicious of the idea that we need to make the commit messages automated-tool-friendly. What tools are there that would need to extract this info, and would we trust them if they didn't understand "nuances"? I'm on board with Bruce's template as being a checklist of points to be sure to cover when composing a commit message. I'm not sure we need fixed-format rules. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
