@gerep I think it's about:

  1. avoiding short commit messages like "fixed that bug". If you have to jump back to a specific commit, it's way faster to scan meaningfull commit messages to find what you're searching for.

  2. avoiding big commits with lots of changes with commit messages like "fixed this bug, fixed that bug....and some more". You and, more important your team/co-workers, will not know what all the "and some more" stuff is or was.

If something goes wrong and you have to find the "rotten apple" it's easier to find it in small commits with meaningful commit messages.
