Which commit message convention do you use at work?

Most of the time it's simply something like:

JIRA-123 Removed the X & Added the Y to allow Z

When the ticket is going to be closed, all commits are force-pushed as a single one and the branch is deleted, so nobody's going to read your well-thought commit messages except you. That's why there's rarely even a description, unless I really think it's needed. If you want context, JIRA's ticked with a good description says it all.
