SubjectRe: [PATCH] commit: Add -f, --fixes <commit> option to add Fixes: line
Date
There are unbound number of kinds of trailers people would want to
add, depending on their projects' needs. We should not have to add
a specific support for a tailer like this one, before thinking
through to see if we can add generic support for adding arbitrary
trailers to avoid code and interface bloat.

Think of the existing --signoff as a historical mistake. Such a
generic "adding arbitrary trailers" support, when done properly,
should be able to express what "--signoff" does, and we should be
able to redo "--signoff" as a special case of that generic "adding
arbitrary trailers" support, and at that point, "Fixes:" trailer the
kernel project wants to use should fall out as a natural consequence.
