Thanks for mentioning this. When I originally started using the convention, I didn't use the scope/module designator, since for many smaller projects it can be overkill. I just kept the parentheses around the type for aesthetics, but I see how that could be confusing for someone adopting the conventional method (and/or make the template incompatible with other conventional commit tools). I've updated the article to include these changes, and also added more info on structuring a commit message in my git configuration.

Cheers!

Happy to help :)

Also you could turn your help message into a shell alias or a bookmarked page / gist so you can read it anytime without committing.

That linked page looks good.

That's a lot of dotfiles. Here are just a few of mine github.com/MichaelCurrin/dotfiles
