tl;dr
I like commit messages :)

The command above is nice but does not show the 2.4.x revision the
trunk one I'm looking for is merged into.

Eg., for this current merge, the relevant output is:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1732252 | jailletc36 | 2016-02-25 07:51:13 +0100 (Thu, 25 Feb 2016) | 1 line

Save a few bytes in conf pool when parsing 'DefaultRuntimeDir' directive.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1732353 | jailletc36 | 2016-02-25 20:49:21 +0100 (Thu, 25 Feb 2016) | 1 line

Save a few bytes in conf pool when parsing 'DocumentRoot' directive on some OS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1732369 | jailletc36 | 2016-02-25 22:00:46 +0100 (Thu, 25 Feb 2016) | 1 line

Save a few bytes in conf pool when parsing 'Mutex' directive on some OS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

but I can't find any r1733279 there, and had to look at the original
STATUS' change:

-  *) Save a few bytes in conf pool when parsing some directives
-     Trunk patch:
-         http://svn.apache.org/r1732252
-         http://svn.apache.org/r1732353
-         http://svn.apache.org/r1732369
-     2.4.x patch:
-         Trunk version of patch works
-     +1: jailletc36, ylavic, icing

to figure out.

I often have to search for a particular commit revision, mainly in my
mailbox (cvs@), to find out what's related, and for this the commit
message helps a lot ;)

But I agree that I may not be svn expert enough to find the right
command by myself...

The online viewvc's "Revision Log" does not show the svn properties
too, useful tool when you don't have you working copy (or svn) at
hand.

Honestly I didn't really know it was a required practice (is it?),
just always seen it in merge messages and found it useful, so just
proposed...

Right, it should/must? be in STATUS "Trunk patch(es):" though, if
referring to a real trunk commit at least (this helps finding and
commenting the original commit on review too).


No strict opinion on all that though, my personal use of commit
messages may be abusive, and if the information I need is missing,
well I'll find it some other way...

Yann.

PS: I don't like too much top posting too :p
There seems to be two "real" schools here, so I adapt...
