Git Commit Messages

Hey folks,

I'd like to request that people start prefixing their commit
messages with [help]. Optionally, you can do the full path to
a file if you've edited just one file, but the [help] part is
the most useful.

Maintainers often look through logs, especially for creating
NEWS entries at release time. They have to wade through a lot
of stuff from developers, translators, and writers. It sucks
up cognitive load to mentally process a bare commit message
like "Minor edits". Instead, use "[help] Minor edits".

Thanks for your understanding.
