I recently came across this post and thought I'd share to the group, since
I am one of the many git evangelists here.

TL; DR:

   1. Separate subject from body with a blank line
   2. Limit the subject line to 50 characters
   3. Capitalize the subject line
   4. Do not end the subject line with a period
   5. Use the imperative mood in the subject line
   6. Wrap the body at 72 characters
   7. Use the body to explain what and why vs. how




Thanks,
