Commit message summaries like "fix bug [$whatever external identifier]
are evil and should not be accepted IMO. They provide zero useful
information to someone reading the mailing list subjects or git

The commit message summary should be understandable on its own, without
reading the whole commit message or looking up any external information.
In this case, 'fix a double free' would be appropriate.  Any external
identifiers should be moved to the body of the message.
