Is https://clojure.atlassian.net/browse/CLJ-1330 the best list of the naming conventions used by the Clojure compiler for different code constructs? Is there a more up-to-date or definitive list anywhere?

Probably the only list :) but I would not consider any of those to be fixed for all time. We’ve got a recent ticket that proposes to alter protocol extension method names for example

cfleming01:11:33

Ok. Sometimes tooling (things like debuggers and coverage engines) like to know the classnames.

It would be extra nice if they were derivable from source, but sadly that’s not the case right now.

alexmiller01:11:27

A great place to request such a thing would be https://ask.clojure.org :)

cfleming01:11:53

I knew that was coming 🙂

cfleming01:11:06

I’ll do that.
