Excellent, will do that for the next release. So the command for sugar 
for this release would be (no-merges to get rid of the messages when you 
merge the master tree "Merge branch 'master' of 
gitorious at git.sugarlabs.org:sugar/mainline"):

git log v0.83.4..v0.83.5 --no-merges | git-shortlog

That will encourage people to write nice commit messages :) I would 
suggest to put up some guidelines (no rules), so a reader can more 
easily parse them. For example:

- ticket number always at the beginning of the commit message
- Start message with a capital letter
- For typo fixes use: _Typo
- For pylint fixes use: _Pylint

More thoughts?
