Can I change the commit template in eclipse?

Hi, can I change the templete for a commit in elipse? Ie., I have the Jira ticket selected, and do an svn commit, and it fills out the first couple lines of the commit log. That is great, but the $%ˆ&*( around here don't like the format, so I have to hand edit the commit log. It would be nice to customize.

Hello Scott,

It is possible to customize the commit message. That is handled by Mylyn (Atlassian Connector is based on Mylyn).

In your Eclipse please go to "Window > Preferences > Mylyn > Team" and change Commit Comment Template according to your needs.
