Jakob Homan commented on GIRAPH-21:

I usually think of 80 chars as being 80 + 3 or 4 character buffer for 
semicolons, parens, etc.  It's a good rule to have, but exceptions need to be 
made.  The complicating factor is that with a 80 chars + 4 spaces per indent + 
lots of complicated Java type definitions (what I wouldn't give for Scala's 
type aliases), the code gets pretty craggy, pretty fast.  Going to two spaces 
would probably have a bigger impact than it might first appear, but I don't 
have a strong opinion.

>            Priority: Minor
> Currently there is a CODE_CONVENTIONS file in the base path of Giraph.  It's 
> fairly sparse and we have been assuming an 80 char limit per line.  It's good 
> to have common conventions so that the code doesn't get too messy.  Does 
> anyone have any opinions on this now?  Probably best to tackle early and then 
> have something to follow.
