Subject [VOTE] Approve coding conventions for the Derby project
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2006 23:53:03 GMT
This is a vote to define the coding conventions for the Derby project 
per the db project guidelines http://db.apache.org/source.html
Vote closes  10:00am, Wednesday, August  15.

[+1]  Adopt the coding convention described.
[-1 ] Do not adopt the coding convention described.

The conventions outlined below will be published on the wiki page 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbyContributorChecklist

Derby uses the "Code Conventions for the Java Programming Language"
(http://java.sun.com/docs/codeconv/html/CodeConvTOC.doc.html) with these
amendments:
 - space indentation (no tabs).
 - Derby does not discourage deferring variable declaration to the first 
use.
 - Lines should be limited to 80 characters
 - @author tags should not be used at all

Note: There is a great deal of existing code that does not match this
convention. Changes to existing code should match the surrounding code
for readability, matching tabs or spaces as appropriate (see Tabs) .
Patches should not have white space diffs. Code and diffs should be
readable in  context.
