I know almost nothing on Drupal patches but it is important for me to ask this for others and myself: Why almost every Drupal patch I've seen in discussions in Drupal.org has a long complicated file name? For example, I've seen this one yesterday:
Why is the -- structure, why 3 words in the first structure(?), what is the medium-number, and what is the 1 (first patch release from the same committer)?
Two more examples, which are different from the above and one from another:
And there could be more I guess...
I would thank any experienced dev who could shed some light in this context...
And also a subtle question: If I download a file with a long name and than changed the name to something like "fix1.patch" just for navigation comfortability, Will it still work as normal as it should have been?
