Add a asterisk (*) beside the name of the collection as an easy way to identify if it's a private or public addon collection.

Asterisk is just a suggestion. You may use any formatting or style that you think is appropriate.

Comment 2

More ideas:
1) a different icon
2) a different color of the name
3) an asterisk (*) beside the name
4) put the word "private" after the name
5) put an icon "private" after the name
6) italic name

Option (4) is the clearest. Everyone can realise what it means but it may not look nice graphically. Option (5) would be a better idea. Similar to how some sites put the word "new" as an icon, we put a "private" icon after the name. It's also very clear what it means.

I simply want an easy way to identify which collection is private in the list. Imagine how handy it is if your list is mixed with both public and private collections.
Will keep this bug around, but not a high priority.

Screenshot showing Private label

Fix lands in r95125.

Collections that are not listed get a [Private] label in their description.

New position beside collection name

I didn't think what we had was prominent enough so I:

- put the label beside the collection name (as opposed to description)
- made the text bigger and bolder

This screenshot illustrates.
