-1 from me as well.
When I first started with OpenStack, I probably would have agreed with
letting small grammar mistakes and typos slide by.
However, I now feel that getting commit messages right is more
important. Also keep in mind that with small grammar mistakes, the
intent may be obvious to a native English speaker, but to another
non-native English speaker it may not be. And just a few small
grammar mistakes/misspellings/typos can add up until the meaning may
be harder to figure out for another non-native English speaker.
Also, I can't speak for everyone, but in general I've found most folks
open to grammar corrections if English is not their native language
b/c they want to learn and fix the mistakes.
