Raul, I don't think I agree with you here. Somehow you are making it sound
that if we don't have the "right" tooling, then we should not try to
enforce coding guidelines. That would be a disaster in my view.

I think that given the current situation, providing styling comments during
reviews is the right way to go. All the feedback we have received so far is
that people generally appreciate how nice Ignite code looks, and gladly
accept the feedback on style from more experienced committers.

Also, take a look at some other replies on this subject, especially the
comments that came from the new community members.
