I believe that this question (asked by someone other than me) was incorrectly closed as duplicate:

git : How to uncomment the default commit message text?

The poster of the question specifically desires to include the list of modified files in the commit message, which the other question doesn't mention at all. I agree that the two questions sound similar, but there are significant differences both in the desired behavior and in the possible solutions.

I left an answer before it was closed, but I believe that there is room for additional answers from people who might disagree with my answer.

The accepted answer on the other question does not answer the "dupe", but the second answer certainly provides the means. –  user7116 Mar 23 '12 at 0:37
    
How so? The commit.template is a static file, so it couldn't include dynamic information about which files have changed. The accepted answer is actually closer, since a prepare-commit-msg could be dynamic, but it's not detailed enough to really help the "dupe" poster. –  amcnabb Mar 23 '12 at 4:58
