mod /vt.,n./ 1. Short for `modify' or `modification'.
Very commonly used -- in fact the full terms are considered
markers that one is being formal. The plural `mods' is used
esp. with reference to bug fixes or minor design changes in
hardware or software, most esp. with respect to patch sets
or a diff. 2. Short for modulo but used *only* for
its techspeak sense.
