Subject [discuss] Should we evaluate at commit messages as part of PR review?
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 18:46:15 GMT
Hi everyone,

We have a wiki page
that discusses why good commit messages matter and links to a even better
article on the topic. In addition to what's described in those documents,
better commit messages also would make it easier to have good PR messages.
Good commit and PR messages also provide more context to the reviewer who
in turn now can do a better job at reviewing the pull request.

Looking at our git log gives me the impression that we aren't always living
up to that standard. In fact we frequently aren't even close.

I propose taking clear and well formatted commit messages into account as
part of our PR review process. Lacking commit messages can be just as bad
as bad naming in our code.
