We have a team (using Git) that would like to be able to specify the message for merge commits created from a server side merge of a pull request. This is mainly to include the issue tracking number in the message so it can more easily be traced.

    Hi Peter,

    Would it be useful that the commit message would be taken from the comment box when you use the merge button ?

    As long as it's clear to a user that the comment box is going to be used. In 3.5 at least, the two don't really look connected in the UI.

    Dear Peter,

    We're in the move to public issue tracker. Please feel free to register yourself there, and any of your co-workers. You will also get an personal group that you can manage and create private tickets if required.

    Ticket was backported to issue tracker: on 2015-11-19T00:00:00Z
