So the priority order of the properties would be:
for normal commits, and

for creating a branch.

But I see a problem here: by automatically specifying whether a ticket
is fixed/accepted/whatever you can not change that manually.
For such integrations with bugtrackers I recommend using the
bugtraq:logregex properties instead. That way users have to write the
'trigger' parts manually, but they can do so as needed and they actually
see what's happening to the ticket.
