I recently added an extra section to the contributions checklist on
the wiki documenting the conversation on commit messages from when
we switched to git:
Andreas pointed out that different people are including the ChangeLog
entries in different ways,
1. With paths and with the date-and-author header:
2014-07-30 Gary Benson <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* btrace.c: Include defs.h.
* common/ptid.c: Include defs.h or server.h as appropriate.
* nat/mips-linux-watch.c: Likewise.
2. With date-and-author headers but no paths:
2014-08-04 Tom Tromey <email@example.com>
* gdb.base/sss-bp-on-user-bp-2.exp: Match "to_resume", not
3. With paths but no date-and-author headers:
* amd64-windows-tdep.c (amd64_windows_frame_decode_insns):
Add debug trace.
4. With no preamble at all:
* chew.c (print_stack_level, main): Cast result of pointer
difference to match format string.
What are people's preferences here? My preference is #1, but I could
live with #3. If we come to some kind of concensus on this I'll
update the wiki to reflect this.
