Would it be possible to use sed to replace a variable of a commit.template instead of adding at the beginning/end of the commit message?

E.g:

Description:

Ticket: $BRANCH_NAME

@samarnayak where do you want to run it? Under Powershell?

Alternatively, under WSL or (even) Cygwin things should work fine. But I have to admit I haven't tried it myself.
