Commit messages not showing in Web UI or in API

#1

For our builds, only a minority of the commit messages are showing up in the Web UI and API. This started happening sometime around 2-5 pm last Thursday. This is causing our developers confusion, and our build system relies on the commit messages provided by the API. I reached out to support@circleci.com on Friday and sayhi@circleci.com yesterday, but haven’t heard anything.

Our commit messages are auto-generated for our mirror repositories, so I started to suspect that the length of them might be the issue, but was able to disprove that with the following set of tests. As you can see, I did get a failure (the commit message not showing) at 101 characters, but then was able to get a pass with it, too, later on.

pass ?!?

Any chance you guys could look into this? When we click through the UI to the commit itself on Github the message is there.

Looks like this has been subsequently fixed. Thanks!
