Or the tool you use to attach patches to bugs.webkit.org could do the substitution of the bugs.webkit.org URL to the webkit.org URL for you so you don't have to think about it (much).

Or prepare-ChangeLog could preformat it for you so you only have to copy and paste the bug id:

        <http://webkit.org/b/BUGID> This is your bug title
        Reviewed by NOBODY (OOPS!).
