Do shorten long branch names in journal/log

Eduard 4 years ago updated by Marc Strapetz 4 years ago 2

Long branch names push the commit message out of the view. Shorten long branch names so at least a part of the commit message is visible.


A example for a long branch name:

custom/JDK8/dr-21654-some-jira-issue-title

Depending on the available space, shortening could be more aggressive. Everything from
custom/JDK8/dr-...jira-issue-title
to
cust...itle

could be possible.

The main aim should be to leave some space for the commit message.

Please post some examples of long branch names you are encountering and suggestions on how to shorten them.
