RE: Commit log templates

Well, we did that before with CVS, but people would forget what info was
required and in what format to input the data, i.e. supplying certain
key value pairs. We have a very big development org and we were getting
too many support calls asking why commits were failing. It's really a
necessary feature I think. I'm surprised it's been left out.
