Except I had fixed it before it was asked to be fixed (just no commit
messages were made in the mean time, so Casey didn't know it was fixed

The 'update' hook system is on an account about 7 people have access
to. And its not a long-term solution, since gitorious will ideally
setup some sort of standard way to do hooks.

Anyways the format of the kde-commit message are precisely the sort of
details that Amarok switched early to sort out.

Btw, we have a need for a BUG: Bugzilla hook. Anyone should feel free
to send one to me, I'll set it up. :)
