Description Stefan Sauer (gstreamer, gtkdoc dev) 2010-06-08 18:45:24 UTC

according to api and design docs it is meant for "debugging and identification". I can't find any use of it. I suggest we deprecate it and remove it in 0.11 - unless someone has real use for the stuff.

I seem to remember we used it for something but then I couldn't find it anymore. I think it's unused and we should deprecate it.

    gstobject: deprecate gst_object_{set|get}_name_prefix()
    The name prefix stuff has never been used for anything and it doesn't
    look like we'll ever want to use it for anything.
    Fixes #621006.
