Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/3] dt-bindings: Add vendor prefix for ProBox2

Hi Wilson,

Please note that HTML-format mails are not permitted on most Linux
mailing lists, so your below message did not arrive for the other reviewers.

My updated proposal is:

probox2         PROBOX2 (by W2COMP Co., Ltd.)

Rationale: Repeating the same name with just different casing on the
right does not provide additional information to a reader wondering whom
this prefix belongs to and whether to use it for new compatible strings.

If that proposal is okay with you, we still need to figure out how to
describe your company in the commit message below.

W2COMP describes itself as an "online reseller", and PROBOX2 does not
have any About Us page to derive a fair description from - "reseller"
appears to contradict my above description as "manufacturer".
Therefore my (unanswered) off-list inquiry from Aug 28, when you first
mentioned W2COMP to me.

So what about: "PROBOX2 is a TV box brand by Hong Kong based online
reseller W2COMP Company Limited."?

CC'ing William.

Thanks,
Andreas
