This is great! Commit messages are one of those weird parts of the development cycle that feel like they're just some boring, but necessary admin task. Having some guidelines (and enforced templates) help, but your article does a grand job of showing what bad and good messages look like and why the latter is important.

I also agree with Kyle's comment about context, but then you can also add a little more detail in the commit body for that where it's needed.
