Updated. But according to GNU Coding Standards some

variables as left lowercased but when referencing the value of a variable one
uses its capitalized variable name. When exactly GNU Coding Standards uses
capitalized identifiers in the examples there is AFAIK not clarified there and
it still remains a life mystery for me.
In fact it is there:
The comment on a function is much clearer if you use the argument
names to speak about the argument values. The variable name itself
should be lower case, but write it in upper case when you are speaking
about the value rather than the variable itself. Thus, “the inode
number NODE_NUM” rather than “an inode”.
So I think I had the ChangeLog comments correct according to GCS before. :-)
