Oh this one is nice. Here is the original block in php

* @param $module
*   Name of the module that implements the block to load.
* @param $delta
*   Unique ID of the block within the context of $module. Pass NULL to return
*   an empty $block object for $module.

So the amount of signs is exactly that it looks like it would be another parameter.
This seems to be that there should be a kind of styling for the next param.

I think you're just objecting to this:

* @param $delta
*   Unique ID of the block within the context of $module. Pass NULL to return
*   an empty $block object for $module.

when $block is not actually a variable.

OK. That's a valid point. $block here should just be "block", as in "return an empty block object...". Sounds like a good project for a novice contributor to learn how to make a patch!

I'd be happy to learn how to make a patch - please point me in the right direction ..

lukus - I just followed the steps on this page - http://drupal.org/project/drupal/git-instructions

Not sure about how to properly name this patch.

Sorry, cross-post! Looks like you found some instructions. :)

The patch looks fine (assuming the test bot agrees), and should apply to d7 and d8. Thanks!

Oh, and regarding patch naming - the name you chose is fine. Usually people put the issue number and a description in the name, which you did.
