Compared to add all contributors to the forge ticket, what exactly is the benefit of having them in the commit message, especially if the goal is to extract the information and prominently publish it?
The benefit of adding them to the ticket would be, that I could add some people even now, giving them credit for what was merged already.
Post reviews could be credited, it is less error prone as well, as missing names could be added at any point in time.
Regarding „the overhead“:
Of course any effort to become more inclusive and thankful is absolutely worth it.
That said, my intention is to avoid unnecessary overhead wherever possible.
E.g. the requirement of having a forge ticket for every change request, more often than not leads to duplicated information or forge tickets with having less info than the commit message.
If this proposal isn’t about adding a new requirement (which I read from changing the hook), but about the possibility to add diverse contributors where it makes sense I’m fine of course.
I still think bugtracker would make more sense for that, but I would also be fine with commit messages, if there are reasons to do so.
That said, I think the creator of a change should be responsible for adding such information because it will be the person most likely knowing the people involved, more so as the reviewers or mergers at least.
