I applied it with "git am FILE" and pushed.
The only thing I changed was the first line of the log: 2 bytes:
to conform with what I've just noticed was an unwritten standard.
Not sure it deserves to be written down/adhered to, but
I've been giving it a try:

  - don't capitalize the first word of the summary sentence
  - don't include a trailing period

Both are driven by length constraints.
We needn't make that first line a sentence.
A prefix of the summary line can be used as a search string
in certain git commands, so making it easier to type and using
consistent capitalization are good.

So I made this change:

  -doc: Add example .bashrc code for a ~/.dircolors file.
  +doc: add example .bashrc code for a ~/.dircolors file
