Should `revertPattern` in angular preset also match regular revert format? #348

The default revertPattern is

/^Revert\s"([\s\S]*)"\s*This reverts commit (\w*)\./

and the one in conventional-changelog-angular is

/^revert:\s([\s\S]*?)\s*This reverts commit (\w*)\./

The Commit Message Guidelines mention:

If the commit reverts a previous commit, it should begin with revert:, followed by the header of the reverted commit. In the body it should say: This reverts commit ., where the hash is the SHA of the commit being reverted. A commit with this format is automatically created by the git revert command.

So conventional-changelog-angular behave as specified, however the statement A commit with this format is automatically created by the git revert command seems to be incorrect:

$ git commit -m "feat: some feature"
[master 5e817ec] feat: some feature

$ git revert 5e817ec                                                                                                                                                              
[master 3881a12] Revert "feat: some feature"

$ git log -n 1 --pretty='%B'                                                                                                                                                       
Revert "feat: some feature"

This reverts commit 5e817ec4022b7ea1406ad9864e8e124fe94be23e.

As a result when using the conventional-changelog-angular and reverting a commit with git revert (without later editing the commit message manually) it will not be parsed properly.

To solve this problem we could change revertPattern in the conventional-changelog-angular to

/^(?:Revert|revert:)\s"?([\s\S]+?)"?\s*This reverts commit (\w*)\./

so both format would be matched.
