This touches on one of my big pet peeves, in the commit message one should:

"*Describe why a change is being made.*

A common mistake is to just document how the code has been written, without
describing /why/ the developer chose to do it that way. By all means
describe the overall code structure, particularly for large changes, but
more importantly describe the intent/motivation behind the changes."

a really great description of what a commit message should include and why,
but rarely due.
