[User error...] Git is missing commit message

Moving to Linux, next issue: I cloned one of my Github repos, added the platformio.ini for it with “linuxized” paths and amended .gitignore for some PlatformIO-specific files.

When trying to “Commit & Sync”, I get to edit the COMMIT_EDITMSG:

Did it, saved the file and then I am getting an error

Commit operation was cancelled due to empty commit message.

Looks like PlatformIO is placing the file at another place than git is expecting it?

Argh. My bad, I added a # in front of the message…
