    misc: Clarify commit message guidelines · cb3c607f
    Boris Shingarov authored
    This change in wording aims towards a more welcoming first review
    atmosphere for new contributors. I was recently reading through a
    chain of very-high-quality commits from a first-time contributor,
    and the only problem was the conjugation of the commit message.
    This is a totally minor issue but when I am scanning through a list
    of a thousand commit messages in imperative mood and there is one
    standing out in past indicative, it throws off my concentration.
    Now I am left with a dilemma on my hands: I don't want the risk of
    mistaken impression of undue nitpicking over undocumented style
    preference, in a good commit from a new contributor. The present
    change borrows additional explanatory language from Eclipse's Commit
    Guidelines, to avoid this kind of tensions in the future.
