Here, a message of "fix #1234" is NOT sufficient.
I have done so myself and have found ~50 in the current log since 0.12.1.
Those are not useful messages. Having to do to mantis to check the changes 
is quite annoying. Especially if the fix is not detailed in the bug report 
The commit message should explain the _change_. The bugreport should document 
the _reason_.
