Discourse GitHub commit prefix convention

For those who want to bring changes to Discourse’s code, we require that each GitHub commit have one of the following prefixes:

Prefix Definition
FIX A bug fix [1]
PERF A performance improvement
UX A user interface change
SECURITY A security problem fix
FEATURE An added feature
A11Y An accessibility improvement
DEV A Discourse internals change that doesn’t belong in the above categories

It makes it easier for us to generate release notes. :v:
