Use the recommended style as mentioned in Git documentation somewhere: 
First line a summary of at most 40 chars, then empty line, then optional 
detailed commit message (which is stripped by git-shortlog).

Also, I'd suggest mentioning ticket numbers at end instead, in the style 
used by Debian. Example:

Fix foobar -> barbaz. Closes: SL#1234, OLPC#1235.

The logic is to always prepend "Closes: " and then either "SL#" or "#" 
for each comma-separated ticket closed, or prepend "OLPC#" for tickets 
closed at the laptop.org bugtracker.
