I was wondering why TortoiseGit* was complaining that my commits had no message in them.
“Aborting commit due to empty commit message.”
Turns out the new version by default strips out messages starting with a # character.
As detailed in this issue report, the over-ride is in Settings / Dialogs 2.
*yeah, I’m not a hardcore Git user, though I do prefer Git Bash on Windows for some operations
