RFC: best practices for referencing bugs/features in commit messages and %changelog

Adam Spiers
Hi all,

openSUSE has a documented policy for how to reference external bugs /
features from within package %changelogs:

    https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Creating_a_changes_file_(RPM)#Bug_fix.2C_feature_implementation

This works fairly well, but is not perfect, especially in the case
where entries in a foo.changes file are automatically generated from
upstream SCM repositories, e.g. via the tar_scm source service.  Some
recent discussion amongst my team got me thinking about whether we
could improve this slightly.  So I just wrote up my thoughts, which
include two possible ways forward:

    https://github.com/openSUSE/obs-service-tar_scm/issues/207

Feedback on this would be very welcome.

Thanks!
Adam
