Thanks, corrected this in the updated patch https://public-inbox.org/git/20180512091728.4931-3-luis.marsano@xxxxxxxxx/.

Not necessarily bad, but the reason was to conform with Documentation/CodingGuidelines.
The updated commit message now explains this.

The original intent for this was semantics & accessibility: screenreaders more reliably interpret … than ... as ellipsis, and I imagine other assistive technology would, too.
However, after research, I've learned there are better supported ways to go about it, so I'm retracting that change.

The updated patch https://public-inbox.org/git/20180512091728.4931-3-luis.marsano@xxxxxxxxx/ should reflect all corrections.
Thank you for the feedback, and please let me know of further issues.
