Format commit logs

Format of commits
- The first line should be a quick summary under 100 characters. If sufficient and not too trivial, I use this for the relax release announcement.
- A blank line.
- A description and link to the support request.
- Another blank line.
- All the details in multiple paragraphs if needed.
- The final blank line.

Fix for "PROBLEM" Fix for bug #12345, (https://gna.org/bugs/?12345) - Title of bug My name provided this patch, and was discovered during work on a XYZ machine. Commit by: name _aaattt_ domain_dot_com This is a small fix for "PROBLEM" when issuing an external call to XYZ. LONGER MESSAGE
Fix for bug #20915, (https://gna.org/bugs/?20915) - Failure of Grace opening in MS Windows My name provided this patch, and was discovered during work on a Windows 7 system: name _aaattt_ domain_dot_com This is a small fix for a wrong call to "raise RelaxMissingBinaryError(binary)", when issuing an external call to xmgrace. The "path_sep" would be equal = [/], and the RE search would not find(True) the full path specified for the xmgrace file. This is now shifted to python: os.path.isfile http://docs.python.org/2/library/os.path.html Another fix, is that as a standard the command "xmgrace" is provided. This will work fine through windows cmd, but the true name for program in windows is "xmgrace.exe", and so an additional search for +".exe" is also performed.
