Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] [Wireshark-bugs] [Bug 2794] Questionable display filter fiel
Date: Sun, 22 Jul 2012 08:38:30 -0400 (EDT)
Just let me know if you want me to keep track of the changed "first field of a protocol filter" for release note purposes.  Per bug 2794, I planned on changing a bunch once I can come up with a consistent naming convention (and then change dissectors to follow that convention).  The two biggest areas are "multiple subdissectors of a particular protocol" (ie H.248) and "common collection of protocols" (ie zbee, scsi).  My current thought is to have "multiple subdissectors of a particular protocol" keep the dot notation, (ie h248.<subprotocol>.<subprotocol field>) and have the "common collection of protocols" have an underscore inbetween (ie zbee_<protocol>.<subprotocol field>).  Comments are welcome. 
Technically, I don't think ntppriv -> ntp.priv shouldn't need to be noted because "ntppriv" is not a dissector.  Those fields are part of a structure within "ntp".   To me this was one of the goals of bug 2794 - to ensure the first field always correponds to a dissector filter name.

Should we update the release notes if the first field of a protocol filter 
In this particular example I've noticed two while looking at about 5 protocols
(pap -> prap, ntpptiv -> ntp.priv).

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
