Modify default merge message

When you merge a request from the UI, I want to know if there is a way to modify the message via java code some place?  Can this be done? 


To be more detailed when you merge a pull request you get 


Merge pull request #X in A/REPO from user/REPO to Branch"



I want to remove that and just let the user add a commit message by hand.

Hi Michael, 

I`m afraid that is not possible to customize this kind of message. 

However, the user can add a comment to each commit made. 

Using the webUI this option appears after you chose to save the edits of the files.

Using the terminal the user can add a commit message using 

git commit -m
