Yes indeed. I read all of the commits logs to emulab repos, as should
everyone else :-) This helps to avoid people stepping on each other's toes,
duplicating work, conflicts that cause people to toss the word "git" around
like a three letter curse word.

I'm not very good at following Eric's commit logs guidelines. I just don't
know how to say anything in 70 characters that is worth reading. Well, I'm
good at saying "Minor bug fix" :-)
