Sorry, but could we not make checkin comments like "Fixes."? It would just take a few more seconds to describe it in a complete sentence...

Request seconded.

Sorry - I thought the fix was so trivial it didn't need a long winded
comment. Myself I use the 'diff' interface on xenbits to discover what
a given check in does.

Wait till you're wading through 3000 of these things to find a
particular one, or looking for something that might address
your bug - you'd really appreciate a few words then, rather
than opening a few thousand diff files..also, helps automated
scripts grep for things and triggers, etc..
