Re: Fwd: bug: contrib/subtree: Commit message title should be in imperative mood




I would argue that:

1. If used on the "Git project itself" (as in my case), the commit
message now cannot be used unedited because it is a conflict with the
project's guidelines, and also conflicts with the format of "all" (or
most) the other Git (and GitHub) commit titles.
2. If not "used on the Git project itself" (I assume it will always be
used on A Git project), changing the commit title to be in line with
the rest would not hurt anyone.
