inconsistent hg flow log messages

The log messages produced by hg flow are inconsistent and rather unpleasant in some cases. For example:

flow: Merged <feature> 'my-sample-feature' to <develop> ('develop').
flow: Closed <feature> 'my-sample-feature'.

Others are more reasonable:

flow: Created branch 'feature/sqlalchemy-plugin'.

It would be nice if the first two were more like the third? That is:

flow: Merged 'feature/my-sample-feature' to 'develop'.
flow: Closed 'feature/my-sample-feature'.

Is this configurable? If so, how?

I'm running 1.5.3 with the embedded Mercurial.

These messages come from hgflow itself, which I try not to alter too much so that it stays consistent with the upstream:

Most of the time you don't see these messages anyway, unless you force SourceTree to always show the full output in Preferences. SourceTree insulates you from it by giving you the 'Preview' panel in the flow action windows.

I see. These are the commit messages, so they show in the log view description for every flow-related commit. I'll either live with it, modify it myself, or take it up with the hgflow guys.

Thanks for the response.
