re: How to write a good commit message VIEW POST


It's nice to add that this is just one convention of committing; check gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/S... for an alternate widely used(especially in GNU projects) commit style. I normally default to that. Here's an example from some guix patch:

gnu: xorg-server: Fix CVE-2020-14347 via graft.

* gnu/packages/patches/xorg-server-CVE-2020-14347.patch: New file.
* gnu/local.mk (dist_patch_DATA): Add it.
* gnu/packages/xorg.scm (xorg-server/fixed): New variable.
(xorg-server)[replacement]: New field.
(xorg-server-wayland): Use package/inherit.
