Re: Revision log entry - making them mandatory

What I meant by my remark was stereotyping, not that 9-5 programmers does
any less quality code than anyone else.

But, the truth remains, you trust your programmers enough to check in their
code without having a tool that analyses their code for quality, so the best
you should strive for is to avoid forgetting to type in a commit log
message. If you need to provide any kind of rules to what a good log message
is, provide a template. Trying to detect a programmer comitting "aaaaaaaaaa"
could probably easily be done, but what makes "aaaaaaaaa" any worse than "Ha
ha, I'm not going to enter a log message".

Trust your developers. If you can't, hire better ones.
