Re: Automatic prefix and suffix for commit messages

It sounds like what you really need then is the 'commit log message
templates" feature, which is something we've been wanting to implement
for a while, but it depends on more complex features that don't exist
yet. The idea is that the administrator would configure the server
with log message templates -- some sort of form for a user to fill out
("fixes bug:", "reviewed by:", etc.), and then the server broadcasts
this template to each client.
