Some projects do this by convention within the committers, using various 
tags within the log message to denote bug number, reporter, original 
source, test id, whatever.  But it's up to each project to implement a 
policy for this at the community level.

There's a useful set of commentary on this kind of question here:

Note also that SVN allows committers to update log messages after the 
fact, so you can always add new annotations later if needed.
