Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3649) Code style changes, aka The Big Reformat
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2011 13:13:30 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-3649:

bq. I would also like replacing tabs by spaces in the few places where tabs are used (again
consistency) and remove all end-of-line spaces (but that's to please my OCD, I'll live if
we don't do it).


bq. Ultimately style is a very subjective thing; I, for one, prefer brace-on-newlines.

I don't, or at least I used to not, but I've done it for so long now because of this inherited
style that I'm pretty used to it, so I don't have any especially strong feelings either way

bq. but changing this now means that no patch from before the refactor will ever apply, including
everything that will be committed to some older version and merged up and every patches attached
to JIRA at the time of the refactor

Jonathan suggested that we reformat 1.0 as well to get around this problem, fwiw.

> With a new major release coming soon and not having a ton of huge pending patches that
have prevented us from doing this in the past, post-freeze looks like a good time to finally
do this.  Mostly this will include the removal of underscores in private variables, and no
more brace-on-newline policy.
