Referencing Commits in Commit Messages
The preferred form for references to other commits is
``commit <commit> (<subject>, <date>)``, where:
* ``<commit>``:
If available, a tag-relative name of the commit produced by
``git describe --contains <commit-ish>``. Otherwise, the first
8-10 characters of the commit ``<hash>``.
* ``<subject>``:
The first line of the commit message.
* ``<date>``:
The author date of the commit, in its original time zone, formatted as
``CCYY-MM-DD``. ``git-log(1)`` shows the original time zone by default.
Alternatively, the full commit ``<hash>`` may be used.
