I'd begin with a customized commit template:

% cat ~/src/isc/git/bind10-commit.template

% git config --global commit.template ${HOME}/src/isc/git/bind10-commit.template

Then when I commit a change I'll see the [tracXXX] template on my
editor for inserting the rest of the commit message.

My next step would write an Emacs hook to auto-replace 'XXX' with the
ticket number, but maybe manual replacement is just sufficient.
