src tools/tools/git/hooks/prepare-commit-msg ?

(sorry in case this is a duplicate; not sure where git_at_ went; couldn’t 
see the original in the archives)

before committer's guide (CG) git docs on Warner's github the tags were
documented as "Foo-bar:" instead of the old "Foo bar":  ; see:
(with the later fix for Phabricator).

It seems tools/tools/git/hooks/prepare-commit-msg in the source tree
was never updated to that?

I can find a reference to the hook in the ports (not in the src) section
" Commit message formats" of the CG and the referenced file
for ports also was also not changed it seems.

Did we drop the idea of adding the "-" into the "tags"?

I am asking because I kept using them from back then and noticed that
I am missing a lot of MFC reminders (though I thought that was
adjusted to cope with the '-' as well).  So I am trying to sort out
the official format before opening the next can.
