I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me a hand with my general commit messages in Git.
Specifically, my project's history is here: https://github.com/MiniAl/Radium-218/commits/development/.
My question is basically: What kind of quality would you rate these messages?
General goals and thoughts when I write commits:
- Explain what changed (as a brief overview), explain why it changed, and finally explain how this might affect the project in the near future;
- Attempt to make commits minimal and focused ('git add -u -p'); and
- Write messages in Markdown (http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/) to provide a structured way of providing links and emphasis without bloat.
I was hoping someone could take a brief outside look at let me know if I'm actually achieving these goals or if there's something huge that I should be doing and are not.
Brutal, constructive criticism is welcome. .
