Also, remember that the key thing is not length -- it's just that most
information should go in the code (as comments) instead of in the log

The log message should be an overview of the change: it prepares the
reviewer's mind for reading the code change, by explaining what
motivated the change and then briefly describing the overall shape of
the change. But detailed information should be in the change itself.

So Alexander, when you're writing future log messages, ask yourself as
you write "Does any of this information belong in the code instead of in
the log message?"

(I did read the rest of this thread, by the way.)
