re: What tense do you use in Git Commit messages? VIEW POST

I usually use the present tense. It sounds more natural when thinking in terms of "what does this specific commit do". I think of a commit is a snapshot of an event, rather than a fixed point in history or a changelog.

+1000 to this. It also lends itself to easier reading/scrolling through git log. 👌
