why use as small commits as possible:

   - it's possible to cherry-pick single change to other branch / repository
   - it's possible to revert single change
   - it's possible to use git-bisect

If you open Google you will find many good arguments why  "as small as
possible" commits is really good idea.

For example I really like flow used in pkg-multimedia team. They are not
editing d/changelog, but just before release they call git-dch. Then it's
really simple to cherry-pick changes between branches, reverting, ... And
one line in d/changelog = one commit.

Is there anyone else in this list who agrees with Thomas about "big fat"
commits is better?

Best regards
