Subject Re: Reformatting commons-io to single code style ?
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2016 17:21:45 GMT
+1 if the code is messy or inconsistent, -0 if it's already OK.

Personally I wouldn't do the whole code, just tidy in a separate
commit per file before editing it.

If you do all of them, then we should also add the agreed
checkstyle.xml or equivalent code style file, so that it's easy to
keep compliance. The code style should be minimal, e.g. mainly just
get decent indentation and have consistent line-breaks in the method
declaration, but not care too much about things like how if/else
blocks are done or the number of () in a && check.
