In many projects there are guidelines regarding how long lines in commit messages can be. In Linux, for instance, the first line can't be longer than 50 characters. Currently to ensure that I don't break the formatting rule I have to use a dedicated editor with sole purpose of measuring line width and then copy-pasting it to SmartGit "Commit" window. My proposal is to add indicator of current line width into the "Commit" window in SmartGit.
