Ah, that’s certainly interesting.. It’s not something configured intentionally at least, not sure what causes it. Looks like some GitHub index needs refreshing!

We have considered it, but so far it doesn’t seem quite worth it; as far as I know neither GitHub nor GitLab will parse the Reviewed-by trailer anyway, and it would increase the size of the message a fair amount as they would probably have to be split into one line per reviewer to follow existing conventions. But can certainly be considered further.

Good point, I guess we don’t want to touch existing commit messages, but some sort of warning / error could be emitted when exceeding some threshold when creating new commits (I’ve seen recommendations of around 50 / 72 characters for a soft / hard limit).

Best regards,
