Subject: [BUG] org-insert-link should use DEFAULT in read-string when asking for description
Date: Fri, 25 Feb 2022 19:49:23 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87sfs7jafo.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)

Currently, when asking the user for the description of link,
`org-insert-link' calls `read-string' with a non-nil INITIAL-INPUT but
this argument is discouraged and deprecated; moreover, it is unfriendly.

`org-insert-link' should, ideally, use the DEFAULT argument.  If the
user decides that the suggested description is okay, they can type M-n.
