Discussion on: Git commit message convention that you can follow!

Already read a few posts about this topic and it's very common to find some misunderstanding with the "style" type.

For some conventions "style" type stands for "Formatting, missing semi colons, etc; no code change", which makes more sense to me. This kind of changes doesn't fit into any of the other types (it's not refactor, or a feature or chore). In the other hand, style and layout changes for example can fit in "feat" type, in my opinion.

Which type of this convention do you choose for code styling changes?

I usually use lint in place of style because that is what it is doing. Just some personal preference
