[tycho-dev] commit message format

there is an auto-linking feature for gerrit proposals/git commits [1], see "See also" section of example bug[2].

We could use this if we change our commit header prefix to

Bug nnn: ...

This will cross-link bug report and commit both ways in gerrit and git.
I like this even though it takes some more characters than what we use right now because
I don't have to think about manually linking anymore.

What do you think about using this as our recommended commit format?

Regards,
Jan
