OOo can use any syntax it likes, but to help you define it here's my
observations from other ASF projects.

On projects that use JIRA the syntax is to use the JIRA project ID, e.g.
"foo-123" (issue 123 on project foo). This will automatically link the issue
in JIRA to the commit, that is the commit message and links to the duffs
appear in JIRA comments.

I'm not sure if/how the same effect is achieved using Bugzilla.

It is also recommended that when a commit is a patch from a third party that
it includes "thanks to Jane Bar". Thus makes it easier to track active
