>> Commit message is tied to a commit, so editing commit without breaking commit-message is hard (how to revert one change from one commit without rewriting commit message? It requires some git hack). Separate independent COMMIT_MESSAGE file can solve this problem and makes local development easy.

I think it’s important for WebKit's git transition to take consideration of WebKit developers and WebKit workflows. I hope we can agree on this premise as we discuss various options for commit messages.
