When it comes right down to it, I am getting wholely sick and tired of people acting like rulez-police and complaining about the most minor, most insignificant syntactical changes imagineable. The rest of us developers have better things to do with their time then to spend it on a few undistinguished braces that have no effect whatsoever on readability or reviewability and, frankly, are so insignificant that it doesn't even make sense to commit them separately.
You don't believe me? Read Julian's diff and the commit he just made and try telling me that it absolutely *HAD* to be a separate commit because you wouldn't have been able to read the diff otherwise. It is an absolutely ridiculuous thought. Now if someone was going through files making dozens of syntactical changes intermixed with other things then, sure, you could request that they be put in separately and I would call it a reasonable request. But that is not what is going on here. Not by a long shot. We have people on this list that complain over the smallest 'infraction' of the rules, and then jump up the alleged significance of the event by foretelling gloom and doom and the end of all things if the rules are not followed exactly to a T. It MUST STOP. It is not good for the development community or the project. -Matt To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
