Do we have guidelines for commit messages?  I ask because I think it 
would be helpful to include just a smidgen more information in them than 
a reference to various bugzillas.  (To be clear, it's not just you/r 
messages, but you're the person I feel comfortable asking.)

Granted, FDO will perhaps be more accessible than has been bugs.ooo, and 
hopefully will have longevity, but I like the assumption that folks 
might not always be able to access the bug report.  Further, this gives 
those of us who aren't uber-awesome LO coders a bit more insight to a 
change, when we only have a few seconds to glance at emails as they go by.

I'm also probably currently hyper-aware of commit messages as my advisor 
(who is not a coder) just chided me for a commit message that didn't 
give him enough context because he couldn't look at the associated patch.
