I noticed that short (two letters) mount points were not accepted, I tried to define .../xcdl/py (for a Python Git) and .../micro-os-plus/se (for a Second Edition Git) and both were rejected.

I finally renamed them to .../xcdl/python and .../micro-os-plus/second, but these were reflected in quite longer git folders, xcdl-python and micro-os-plus-second.

Is there any good reason to prevent two letter mount points being used?

Regards,
Liviu

We should also allow starting a mount point with a digit.

    As far as I know, this could be allowed.

    Starting a mount point with a digit isn't allowed due to DNS subdomain rules. However [#5332] may allow for that for code repos only.
