Indeed, if this is how it is perceived, I won’t push it forward. I was trying to provide a mechanism for Jim’s proposal of filing a PR for every fixes that was not too heavy on the user.

Anyhow, I have to read the thread again to see how the hooks ideas were pushed and see what is actually achievable.

Just to make sure I got essence of what you said, the patch I suggested for the commit message policy is not good to you, right?
