Hi all, Have there been any threads or blog posts in the past over an appropriate level of comments in the code? A brief search of the Google and the list archives didn't really turn up anything.
>From what I've seen, code in WebKit is much less commented than most if not all large projects I've worked on. Is this intentional? If so, why? Also, do we want commenting style to be consistent across languages in the project? For example, Python code is usually pretty well commented, but we've checked in some Python files here with almost no comments, with the rationale being that "it's WebKit style". To allay any fears, I'm not suggesting that we should have large chunks of boilerplate or anything like that. I'm aware as anybody of the danger of comments being wrong or getting out of sync with the code. -- Dirk _______________________________________________ webkit-dev mailing list email@example.com http://lists.webkit.org/mailman/listinfo.cgi/webkit-dev
