Just one small thing, and as long as it builds (which it should, from the looks of it), it looks good to me.


I think there should be some mention of the rules for this field, as I'm not entirely sure they're documented elsewhere, and it seems like a good place for the canonical definition, ie:

Hash length (lwhsu in D28881 mentioned git rev-parse --short for generating the shortest identifiable hash), and how titles can either be truncated or pushed onto a new line.

I forgot to accept this, didn't I.

I know you'll fix these before you push it, though. :)
