Missing commit messages

Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

Missing commit messages

Post by njdoyle »

Most of the time there aren't any commit messages in the SVN repo.

This sucks a lot. I can't follow what's going on without lots of effort.

It would be awesome if each commit at least had a message. That's not hard to do.

Though - Is there a tool that lets you annotate a git/ git-svn repo with messages to each commit? Because if so we could crowed source documenting IM commits. It should not take a lot to make a simple interface for this.

I am not an expert on GIT and I may misunderstand your request, but see

Code: Select all

git commit -am "Some comments to describe the changes"
