Update HACKING file to reflect describe the new commit subject line format.

Reflect recently agreed-upon protocol that suggests that commit subject lines should be preceded by
the name of the plugin or source module that the commit modifies, as is commonly done with many
projects that use git.

Log messages for git should have the following format:
"A short summary of the changes (should contain bug number)
"[Plugin/module name]: A short summary of the changes (should contain bug number)
(empty line)
[optional] A more detailed description of the changes made. Can have multiple
lines and should contain patch contributer, etc."
As an example, a typical commit against the Subversion plugin looks like this:
Subversion: Don't show a commit number in the info pane if no files are given
When no files are selected, the commit isn't done and the commit number is just uninitialized junk.
