I've tried turning on "Require issue keys in commit messages" for some of our repositories - we've always had a general agreement to use issue keys, and I thought enforcing them was a good idea. It's great except for one thing: branch merges. I'm using Mercurial, and we use feature branching, so there's a fair bit of branch / merge effort.
Traditionally, we've merged back to a build branch with a commit message of "Merge", because we may have many stories that need to be completed before the merge takes place.
Is there any way to allow a Merge commit w/o issue keys? I've noticed that you can merge branches in the bitbucket website w/o the key, so there's clearly some way of pulling it off, but I don't want to require using the website to do all our merges, either.
