Abstract

This TIP proposes to change the name of the introspection subcommand of the trace command from list to info.

Rationale

Although the functionality of the trace command (as extended by [62]) is good, the name of the introspection subcommand, list is not such a good choice:

Hence, this TIP calls for the list subcommand to be renamed to info. (Note that this also makes the subcommand for introspecting on variable traces more similar to its old form vinfo.)
