has the old SVN location in it that you could use to filter if you wanted.
Second, you can have git log spit out what directories were committed
to. In fact, it will tell you *all* directories that were committed to,
and what percentage of commmits/changes went into which directories. You
could then either take the path with the highest percentage or find a
common basename and put that in the subject (along with the repo for
Some possible scenarios ([Amarok/amarok] signifies project/repo)
abcd1234 [Amarok/amarok]/src/browsers Fix some problem or another
Multiple directory, showing most changed path:
abcd1234 [Amarok/amarok]/src/browsers (82%) Fix some problem or another
Multiple directory, common basename, with (MD) meaning multiple
