My favorite form of the first line is:

area: Fixed this in that and the other thing, fdo#12345.

'Area' gives the overview what is it about, most notably when the
commits are part of some bigger picture; in my case I use that for the
wikihelp, like:

wikihelp: Improve check for existence of the localized help, fdo#33258.

Would be great if it become more widely used, but OTOH I think we are
still not in a situation to force that by a hook, or something.
