Agreed, note that it was not meant to be a concrete syntax proposal, only a proof of concept for highlighting a design principle. > May I suggest: > 3) (Closes: #1234567, Vcs-Git:fba134) > And Vcs-Hg, Vcs-Bzr, and so on. How does that sound? Actually, that syntax is the one which gives us problem in Vcs-* field parsing, but that's only because Debian formats are based on RFC822, which is field-oriented and typically enables only per-field lookup. In this case it will not pose any problem as the parsing will be ad-hoc. I'm not sure I like it, but I don't have better proposals ("Commit-Git" starts to be a bit too long).
