We have hook in Mercurial that submits or updates a review request on
changegroup event (similar to post commit hook in SVN.) The change
requests are keyed off of JIRA tickets numbers. Here's the format:
JIRA-TICKET-123 JIRA ticket summary/title here (mercurial repo name.)
We also automatically update the review request description with the
commit comments.

Since the reviews requests are per ticket, we see a fair amount of
code changes submitted per review request. Due to this, a review
request page gets cluttered with change notification when diffs are
uploaded. The reason is the description FROM and TO parts get getting
too long and are eating up the screen real estate.

Does anybody know if there's a way to suppresses the description
change FROM and TO from showing up in the review?

Here's a example of a review request change:

(ff595b0dd8b2) BO-9762 More commit comments here  (John Doe/2012-05-08

I'd appreciate any information.
