So I looked at another (non-qt) repository and noted that the
COMMIT_EDITMSG contains the last commit message. Is that how it's
supposed to be?

For my qt repo, somehow the COMMIT_EDITMSG is only commented line of
the template. Thats why commit-msg script returns an empty string. I
changed the sed exp to Not remove lines beginning with # and it
generated the Change-Id string fine.

I've reverted change now that my COMMIT_EDITMSG is containing the last
commit message.
