I think https://github.com/AdaCore/git-hooks/issues/7 generally covers all 
the things we've come up with regarding custom checks *on commit 
messages*, both those that are clearly GCC-specific (From-SVN:) and those 
that are more generic for projects where people formerly used ChangeLog 
content as their commit messages (rejecting a first line looking like a 
ChangeLog header, rejecting a first line starting with whitespace, 
rejecting a single-word first line).
