RE: [platform-ui-dev] Commit comment format for reporting of bugs

Mylar automatically generates similar commit comments.  I'm wondering if we
could come up with a standard format recommended across
projects.  On the Mylar project have been using a similar format for about a
year and are about to improve it as a result of our upcoming commit comment
templates (see attached screenshot, note that UI will be simplified).  Here
is what we're thinking of for the default format: 

  ${task.status}: {}\n${task.url}


  RESOLVED: 138666: [EditorMgmt] provide mechanism for restoring editors

This is too much to format by hand (e.g. the URL, which is useful for web
based tools such as Fisheye).  But it would be good for us to 'compatible'
with a manual format like the one proposed below.  However "Fix for" reads
awkwardly for enhancements.  So I wonder if you could consider making the
manual format something like the following, and then we could encourage
other projects to adopt this approach and make it the basis of
the default template for Mylar.

  RESOLVED: bug 123: description

The status prefix could be optional, but can be convenient as discussed on:
