In any forum post, is there anyway configure the forum software to automatically make Swift Evolution SE-nnnn into tooltip showing its full title and link to go to the SE's page?

I mean to configure the forum software to filter any mentions of SE-nnnn to turn it into tooltip and link.

Seeing something like "SE-0142 and SE-0157", it would be very nice to tell what the Swift Evolution is about without having to go searching for it. It's not very easy to remember all the SE numbers.

Could we linkify SE proposals in forum posts, and autolink them in GitHub comments?

There wouldn't be a tooltip, but at least you could open them in another tab (or preview them in Safari).


The following URL currently displays a single search result:

https://apple.github.io/swift-evolution/#?proposal=SE-0345

Could the page immediately redirect — using location.replace() — to the full proposal?

Alternatively, proposals could have even shorter swift.org URLs.
