I prefer the new format. However, the new format doesn't really gain us much, so it sounds like it is not worth the effort to change.

As for duplicating the bug number, I don't think that matters. `git log --oneline` shows a short SHA the "title line" which is everything in the commit message until the first empty line. So duplicating the bug number in the first line doesn't really help, since both of these lines already show up.

Old format:

shell> git log --oneline `git svn find-rev r153963` -10
