I don't know why, but I haven't been following the discussion or
reading the tickets.

Since there's an issue number, I presume there's a real issue with
these "strange" names.

I use overly long patch names pretty frequently. In one case it is
because I don't have working text editor integration on Windows, so
it is inconvenient to write a patch name with more than one line in
it. Also, as a matter of style I prefer paragraphs per line. I
think new-line characters should be used to indicate end-of-paragraph
and your rendering/editing software should manage issues like line-
wrapping and other such formatting questions according to the tastes
of the current user.
>> NO - warn on patch names < 10
I agree, please no.
>> NO - warn on punctuation
I agree, please no. I use lack of punctuation to indicate that the
thing is a phrase instead of a sentence.
