    Allow custom "comment char" · eff80a9f
    Junio C Hamano authored
    Some users do want to write a line that begin with a pound sign, #,
    in their commit log message.  Many tracking system recognise
    a token of #<bugid> form, for example.
    
    The support we offer these use cases is not very friendly to the end
    users.  They have a choice between
    
     - Don't do it.  Avoid such a line by rewrapping or indenting; and
    
     - Use --cleanup=whitespace but remove all the hint lines we add.
    
    Give them a way to set a custom comment char, e.g.
    
        $ git -c core.commentchar="%" commit
    
    so that they do not have to do either of the two workarounds.
    
    [jc: although I started the topic, all the tests and documentation
    updates, many of the call sites of the new strbuf_add_commented_*()
    functions, and the change to git-submodule.sh scripted Porcelain are
    from Ralf.]
