Abstract : Over time C has integrated some new features as keywords (some genuine, some from C++) but the naming strategy has not be entirely consistent: some were integrated using non-reserved names (const, inline) others were integrated in an underscore-capitalized form. For some of them, the use of the lower-case form then is ensured via a set of library header files. The reason for this complicated mechanism had been backwards compatibility for existing code bases. Since now years or even decades have gone by, we think that it is time to switch and to use to the primary spelling. This is a revsion of papers to N2368 and N2392 where we reduce the focus to the list of keywords that found consensus in the WG14 London~2019 meeting. Other papers will build on this for those keywords or features that need more investigation.
