Great article! What are your thoughts on the Conventional Commits method?

My commits all have a type and a scope plus some info if necessary:

feat(landing): added pricing page

New page for pricing in addition to the section on the homepage
... etc

Should be "add" though, iirc. So I can read your commit like "this commit will add pricing page".
But nevertheless, I'm using this method too and it's great. It looks nice and understandable in the commit log and I can even generate the changelog file without worrying about manual editing of changes.
