I have a standard format for patchnames: 1234-99.project.brief-description.patch, where 1234 is the issue number and 99 is the (expected) comment number. However, it involves two copy-pastes: one for the issue number, taken from my browser, and one for the project name, taken from my command line prompt.

Some recent fun we've had Mapping with Drupal People love maps. People love being able to visually understand how locations relate to each other. And since the advent of Google Maps, people love to pan and zoom, to click and swipe. But what people hate, is a shoddy mapping experience.
