The following should produce a multi-line comment in JIRA, instead it's cutoff after the carriage return:
KEY-123 #comment This should be a multi-line comment in JIRA: 1. Because it makes sense 2. Instead, the numbered list will be completely absent.
If I try something clever, like this:
KEY-345 #comment This should be a multi-line comment in JIRA: #comment 1. Because this comment is clearly part of the comment above #comment 2. Instead, I get THREE comments in JIRA
Why does this matter? Because smart commits should NOT force me to create illegible commit messages. Ever.
My commit messages should be able to stand on their own without any kerfuffle from some post-processing tool like FishEye + Crucible or JIRA or whatever...
Right now the only way to make this work is:
KEY-678 #comment Create some horrible run-on sentence that is posted to JIRA as a single line, but is, without a doubt, in complete violation of the normal git commit message best-practices... for instance, this thing I'm typing here is definitely more than 74 characters wide. And seriously, who think this: 1. Makes sense, 2. Over the first two examples I gave?
oh, and those little "tag-helpers" below - we have BitBucket, JIRA OnDemand and "Server" FishEye + Crucible...
