could I ask everybody to follow a couple of simple conventions with git:

- Use a Linux-style convention for changlogs, where first line of commit
   message is the summary, and is below 70 characters. It makes it easier
   to review changes at later time

- When updating from git, do:

        git fetch
        git rebase develop origin/develop

    as opposed to "git pull", since the latter creates commits like:

        Merge branch 'develop' of into develop

    that just are not useful.
