there is a quite impressive list of abbreviations to link to tickets of

As there is a growing number of tools which come from github, it would be great
to have the possibility to reference the bugs; unfortunately they don't offer
system-wide IDs but project specific IDs...

Is there any plan how to handle this?

Best regards,

maybe something like gh#fail2ban/fail2ban/pull/249 or
gh#fail2ban/fail2ban/issues/243 ?

It would be better if it was at least partially consistent with
github's own cross-referencing system, which for the above examples
would be:


However we would still need a prefix to identify the github namespace,
so maybe something like this?


Would github recognize these and mark them properly?

In what context? github only hyperlinks them when the text is passed
through its markdown parser, and even then, the "gh:" prefix would
stop this from working. But would that even matter?

I think we first need to answer the question: what are we trying to
achieve here, exactly?

I think it should be documented in the wiki (I can do this) and it would be
great when the OBS would offer a link to the ticket/issue when reviewing a
request and it's mentioned in the changelog like it is done for bnc# tickets;
I've just recognized, that the typical separator is '#' not ':', so the entry
should possibly be named
