Thanks, Moshe.

For what it's worth, Moshe and I discussed the idea of editorializing
in the posts.  My personal bugaboo is http://drupal.org/node/52287
"Commit messages--providing history and credit"

At this point I plan on pointing out when there are repeat offenders
who provide no message or messages like "fixed bugs".  Maybe 7000
messages a month will change my mind, but yesterday I watched sadness
come over Ezra's face as he realized that patches he provides won't
show up in the list of commits on http://drupal.org/user/69959  And
then I watched happiness come back into his face as he saw

So, cheers to RobRoy for making the right kind of commit message!  Now
that I've personally felt the joy of getting a "thanks greggles" for
my patches and now that I've seen the same (de)motivation in other
people I feel justified in pointing out commit messages that leave out

I'll attempt to contact folks prior to any public comments, but this
is a first alert.
