Patch needs improvement: set

Why do the proposed patch remove the following text?

Write detailed commit messages in the past tense, not present tense.
* Good: "Fixed Unicode bug in RSS API." 
* Bad: "Fixes Unicode bug in RSS API." 
* Bad: "Fixing Unicode bug in RSS API." 

I'm not aware of any discussion and agreement about that requirement being changed or relaxed.

Patch needs improvement: unset

Sorry for this stupid mistake. The pattern of commit messages is in past tense, so I thought the problem of tenses disappeared. I didn't notice that the problem actually did not disappeare because the pattern doesn't mention tense of description.
