This [1] is one of the threads we discussed about coding conventions
long time back. We were talking about places to put the code guide
lines, but no one put it. But the thread had concluded with Venkat
mentioning about keeping java coding conventions as a minimum.

Anyway, I thought, may be I am wrong, that in a java project, java
coding conventions are implicit, unless stated otherwise.

Since I felt guilty for not creating a page, even being part of the
initial discussion, I created an initial page for coding conventions
here [2]. Please feel free to edit it.

One more note. We all do mistakes in the code. At least, I do mistakes
however much I tried. Please feel free to correct them, if you see them.
And this will help to improve the quality of "our" code.
