> Currently we haven't turned on any rule in cpplint.py to detect a missing leading whitespace
in comments. Newbies tend to make this mistake even while trying to follow the style guide.

> There is already a category in cpplint.py (whitespace/comments) to detect this, but it
has the unfortunate side-affect of also tagging any trailing comments with less than 2 whitespaces
between the code and the trailing comment as errors.  This side-affect generates a lot of
false-positives since trailing comments in mesos codebase usually has only a single white-space.
Hence proposing adding a new category called whitespace/mesos-comments that takes care of
the more common case of tagging comments with leading whitespace as errors.
