Hi all,

> The shortref can check the date anyway. I think it is best that the filename to be simple

It is a lot slower to grab the shortref and look its date up, rather
than just reading a date.

> And we put the date (and maybe size) after the file

This would solve my above problem, but introduce one of not having the
date as readily available once the patch and wiki are separated. For
example, I accumulate various versions of patches locally, and knowing
which ones I can remove will get interesting/slow with only refs.

Additionally, suckless patches are unlikely to be too large for users
to start worrying about sizes and download times. I don't object to
this proposal, but I would not worry about including file size with
any patch I upload or update.

I'm becoming convinced that the date and short ref are equally important...
