I'd like to be able to automate the commit list in the
the release notes using
$ git-log --no-merges v3-2-stable..v3-2-test \
However, this requires a bit more disciple one our part when
committing. For example, commit msgs like "save memory"
are pretty unhelpful in the case. Please try to have a useful
one line summary (around 60 characters) followed by a blank
line and as much detail as you deem necessary.
It also means that you get more listing from micro commits.
But this is open to abuse :-) So please use your best
judgement. All I ask is that commits be in logical chunks.
if you have two patches, please split them into two commits.
PS: I'm as bad an offender here as anyone, so don't think
I'm pointing fingers. Just trying to make releases easier
for myself and anyone else in the future.
