Subject [jira] [Created] (DERBY-5870) Change the drda package from tab indentation to spaces
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2012 12:51:35 GMT
Kathey Marsden created DERBY-5870:

             Summary: Change the drda package from tab indentation to spaces
                 Key: DERBY-5870
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5870
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Network Server
            Reporter: Kathey Marsden

As a side discussion to DERBY-436 a drda cleanup issue, we discussed changing the drda package
from using tab indentation to spaces.  svn diff, svn merge,  and svn annotate now provide
a -x -b  option to ignore whitespace. This should mitigate any back-porting issues.  

The tab/space issue is an ongoing irritation, especially for new developers and developers
working in the network code, toggling between all spaces in the client to the tab indentation
in the drda package.

Knut said:

(I'd probably be in favour of making this change even if the problems with merging and annotation
weren't solved, though. Backporting may be a little painful in the beginning, but the old
branches will become less relevant and backporting to them will happen less frequently as
time passes. The sooner we do it, the sooner the pain will go away. 

Perhaps if DRDA goes well, we should do the whole trunk.
