commit: do not trigger bogus "has templated message edited" check
When "-t template" and "-F msg" options are both given (or worse yet, there is "commit.template" configuration but a message is given in some other way), the documentation says that template is ignored. However, the "has the user edited the message?" check still used the contents of the template file as the basis of the emptyness check. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
