Ref T10939. This allows the CLI to parse reviewers and subscribers like this:
Reviewers: epriestley, O123 Some Package Name
The rule goes:
- If a reviewer or subscriber starts with a monogram (like X111), just look that up and ignore everything until the next comma.
- Otherwise, split it on spaces and look up each part.
This means that these are valid:
alincoln htaft alincoln, htaft #a #b epriestley O123 Some Package, epriestley, #b
I think the only real downside is that this:
O123 Some Package epriestley
...ignores the "epriestley" part. However, I don't expect users to be typing package monograms manually -- they just need to be representable by arc land and arc diff --edit and such. Those flows will always add commas and make the parse unambiguous.
