The end-user facing names are probably fine with short, medium, full, as long as what they show are clearly explained in the end-user documentation (patch 10/10 covers this). I have a hunch that we may later regret "full" when somebody wants to add even fuller information, though. It might be better spelled "long" instead; I'd rather see REPLACE_FMT_ as a prefix, not suffix. Do we use common suffix for enum values elsewhere? -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
