We're posting messages on the mailing list reminding people of the appropriate format, and of other rules related to the development process.  Of course, some people have raised objections to this practice, but I think overall it is a net win that people are finding out.

This is a trac feature, and Twisted is using it too.  That's the reason for the required "Fixes #xxx" line.

For an example, see the ticket in question:  http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/491

Despite lacking the other required bits of the commit message, the merge did include the ticket number.
