Thank you for your message. Yes, i can confirm that the JIRA/Redmine integration doesn't add the commit message into the comment body.
The reasons for that is some security concerns we had. Namely, users who have access to the issue tracker not necessarily should have access to the commit or VCS data. Exposing a link adds that layer of protection since only people who have access will be able to see the commit data and message.
Think about some critical security issues which is described in the commit message could get exposed to some public issue tracker. This is why we expose only limited information, to have a most secure default.
That said, we're getting a lot of feedback about the integration type text. We plan to add some options to override default templates used for those. So for release 4.14 we'll have a new option to set some custom templates, and you will be able to add your own formatting and expose data you wish to have.

thank you for your quick reply, now I can tell our admins to stop searching ;)
I understand the rationale behind this, but since we are (currently) using both JIRA and RhodeCode purely internally, you can count us to those users that would very much like the option to override the default templates used for commit messages.
