Bug Description

 affects launchpad-code

I'd like to be able to make a log file name based on a merge proposal.
URL's are a poor fit for this because they are a) long and b) contain /
characters which are filesystem delimiters.

Changed in launchpad-code:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Wishlist

jml noted that the self_link url contains the db id - indeed, I'm using that
as a workaround. However, the doc in the API doc for branch_merge_proposal
does not advertise this as an ongoing feature it would be safe to depend on.

Also affects pad.lv, which would like to expose short urls for mps.

IDs are already semi-public and stable because the id is in the email address.

Changed in pad.lv:
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Medium
