We presently review ChangeLogs are part of a patch submission, so I see
no real difference in reviewing the content of a proposed commit message.
If we moved towards linux-style review I think we could do worse, and the
kernel has already worked out a lot of these issues. For example by
accepting body of the email as the commit message, for having the ability
to use consistent tags (signed-off-by) to mark various types of behaviour
Enabling linux<->glibc cross collaboration by harmonizing our process
would be beneficial to both communities.
