I am implementing a linked list, that is a data structure used in computer science, and I have this comment about it:
Singly linked list implementation with a reference to the tail element being maintained
In case you are not aware of the subject, maintain here means that I am referring to the tail element in my code.
I am uncertain if the highlighted part is really needed here. What do you think?
I would appreciate your help correcting any mistakes in this post.

Thanks, the first one is very nice, I will certainly be using it.
So my sentence doesn't make sense at all? Pity
Also, if what you wrote didn't make sense, I would not have been able to give you a better sounding alternative.
I assumed you were referring to a heading which meant something like: "Below, I describe how to implement a singly-linked list which maintains a reference to the tail element when changes to the list are made." (That is a sentence). As a heading, you don't say all that.
Yes, "being maintained" is essential. You could create a singly-linked list with a reference to the tail element that is lost as soon as you make a change to the list. I assume that the property of maintaining a reference to the tail element is essential in your implementation.
Whether what I've given you (or what you originally wrote) is appropriate depends on how you mean to use it. It's a heading. It's a description of an implementation. It's not a sentence.
So my sentence doesn't make sense at all?
A sentence consists of a subject and a predicate. Yours only has the subject."Implementation of a singly-linked list which maintains a reference to the tail element."
Would you say, 'Being fed up means being upset' or 'To be fed up means to be upset' ?
I hope those two are both grammatically correct. Correct me if they aren't.

Could you please, comment on the post I made above.
Thank you in advance, Alex.
to be'being upset'
'To be fed up' means 'to be upset'
or, simply: 'fed up' means 'upset'
There are more accurate definitions of fed up:

Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
If you just want to know the meaning of a word, try OneLook Dictionary Search first.
I have made up a little dialogue, could you please proofread it?
- You look like a ... (could you help me choose a word for it checking this guys' photos Π‘ΠΎΡ‚Π°Π½Ρ‹ Π² ΠΏΠΎΠΈΡΠΊΠ΅ - comuedu.ru).
- Do you know what you look like?
- Not telling your, or you'll get upset!
In this dialogue I meant my partner looks like a potato head.
Was it supposed to be 'what' or 'who'?
Could you think of any other variant in the last line after the comma?
It has been long since I asked the last question, so I think it would be good to put this thread on top.
