Thanks for your command demonstration.

* How are the chances to get these tags better documented?
https://github.com/coccinelle/coccinelle/blob/66a1118e04a6aaf1acdae89623313c8e05158a8d/docs/manual/spatch_options.tex#L165

* Would you like to combine the texts from the first two greps
in a single search pattern?

* I imagine that sort criteria can become relevant for
the determined function name list.

* Will a software build script be needed for this purpose?

I am curious if corresponding software development challenges
will be picked up more.

This item is not mentioned as a key word in the manual for
the semantic patch language so far while the word is used
at seven places in this document.

You can not get the desired information if a metavariable like “x”
is not actually used in the SmPL search code.

How do you think about to take corresponding source code positions
better into account?

Other development tools provide better support for this data processing area.

How will the situation evolve here?

Do you find the following clarification request interesting?

Fix two calls for the program “ocamldoc”
https://github.com/coccinelle/coccinelle/issues/111


> We will continue to optimize this SmPL and send a V2 version next week.

I got another development concern in the meantime.
It seems that you would like to use iteration functionality (add_if_not_present).
https://github.com/coccinelle/coccinelle/blob/99e081e9b89d49301b7bd2c5e5aac88c66eaaa6a/docs/manual/cocci_syntax.tex#L1826

How will it matter here?

Regards,
Markus
