Subject: Re: [PATCH v4] checkpatch: add support to check 'Fixes:' tag format

Do you care to achieve a safe data format description also for this use case?

Does this information indicate a need to split possible changes into
separate update steps?

Can such a message trigger any more thoughts and development ideas?

* Please avoid a typo in this message.

* Which formula do you propose for the length calculation?
