Please provide a keyboard shortcut to access the recent commit messages dialog ("Select A Commit Message") from the Commit dialog. Currently it is only accessible via mouse pointer. It's not even in the Commit dialog's Tab-key sequence.
The same should probably be done for "Load Template". (I just haven't had a need for that feature so far.)

Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_101-b13

Reproduced. Can you Ondro at least make the two buttons traversable via Tab key? Thanks!
No, I cannot make it accessible via Tab key. I added a shortcut KB actions however: Alt-R to open recent messages and Alt-L to open Load Template dialogs.
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201609090002* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #267509 - [a11y] No keyboard access to recent commit messages
Adding KB shortcuts to open recent messages and load template dialogs.
I don't see the fix in NB 8.2 (tried with SVN and GIT).
The fix is not in 8.2, it's in dev. Will be part of the upcoming release.
