      Description

      Currently, messages posted to hipchat are

      Joe User committed to 1 branch at Project/Repository
      On branch "master"

      • Commit message here and truncate... (a0b1c243)

      This means 3 lines per commit, which can easily cause conversations to get lost in the noise. We had this with our previous use of subversion (in that case, posting the entire multi-line commit message), and changing to just post the first line with a link to the web viewer made a remarkable difference.

      I know this seems very trivial, but it's relatively easy and makes the experience that much nicer.

      Therefore, I'd propose the template changes based on context.

      Single commit to 1 branch:

      Single line in hipchat.

      Joe User committed to branch "master" at Project/Repository: Commit message here and truncate... (a0b1c243)

      Multiple commits to 1 branch:

      Line per commit, plus header

      Joe User committed to branch "master" at Project/Repository

      • Commit message here and truncate... (a0b1c243)
      • Second commit message... (b30c72c8)

      Multiple commits to >1 branch:

      Basically, just as-is:

      Joe User committed to 2 branches at Project/Repository
      On branch "master"

      • Commit message here and truncate... (a0b1c243)
      • Second commit message... (b30c72c8)

      On branch "1.0"

      • Another commit message... (c94fe7c6)
