Anyone submitting patches to our module without a proper commit log
message will likely have their patch gently rejected until it's fixed.
That certainly is the case with the vast majority of FOSS projects out
there using git. See "git format-patch".

Likewise, at some point, translators making a commit log message that
reads "Updated a file." will have their commit reverted with an
explanation in the commit log as to why it was reverted.
