Tips for Contribution

shortlog: commit message

commit body

fixes #<issue_number>

Signed-off-by: [Your name] <your email>

where short log is the area/filename where you are making the change. Also, in order to avoid writting the signoff manually, add the --signoff flag while committing. Thus the full command should be:

git commit --signoff

Keep in mind the following points while writting a commit message

- Separate subject from body with a blank line
- Limit the subject line to 50 characters
- Capitalize the subject line
- Do not end the subject line with a period
- Use the imperative mood in the subject line
- Wrap the body at 72 characters
- Use the body to explain what and why vs. how

To add this by default, download the commit message template, and run

$ git config --global commit.template /path/to/file

before committing.
