I can't find this stipulation anywhere in the official docs.


Clearly the quoting style used in the changelog entries follows the GNU
coding style, which has now changed from the former preference of using
backticks as the left quote character to single quotes (the second
document already uses the new style in the example).  In fact it isn't
even talking about needing to always use quotes (it is more consistent
to always use them, but at least for prefixed names there is no
ambiguity of what was meant to begin with).

You might ask Stefan for a policy decision, although I can't see why the
Emacs project would deviate from the GNU coding standard in this regard.

Now you're talking about docstrings and I'll expect that this will also
change, albeit much more slowly.
