According to ITK’s commit-msg hook, “The first line may be at most 78 characters”. Unfortunately, when the first line of a commit message has more than 72 characters, it gets chopped off, replacing the chopped off characters by “…”, as it appears at https://github.com/InsightSoftwareConsortium/ITK/commits
Should the commit-msg hook be modified to only allow up to 72 characters? Or could the GitHub installation of ITK be adjusted to show up to 78 characters, without chopping or “…”?
I’m in favor of allowing clear and explicit commit messages, so if possible, adjusting the GitHub installation would be my preference!
