One note here is that I am still considering a hook to reject merge
commits.

The rationale for this is that merge commits are ugly, and that it isn't
a big deal to require a rebase before a merge, so that any merge is a
fast-forward.

I think it isn't onerous to follow this rule for all branches -- there
being plenty of options for git hosting where you can go nuts -- but of
course I welcome your considered reasons to think otherwise.

I've done various test commits and pushes and I think these scripts are
working adequately well.

If you want to see the current format of the commit messages, look at
one of the "cvs" mailing lists.  E.g.:

    https://sourceware.org/ml/gdb-cvs/2013-10/msg00062.html


We can make changes to the format if desired.  I tried to keep pretty
much the same information that was in the old CVS commit message, though
I didn't attempt to exactly mimic the format.


Commits mentioning PRs also go to bugzilla.  See my test PR for an
example:

    https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16030

The format for bugzilla can differ from the format for the commit-list
message, but I chose to keep them the same.  Again, changeable.

Tom
