I assume that most contributors to Zope 3 or Zope components know how to write code the Zope 3 way.As the community grows, this is an increasingly poor assumption. Different developers come to Zope with different background experience and from environments that have their own coding styles.
My statement was focused on discussions like camel case vs. underscores. Such discussions are basically academic. In real life when you develop software for different companies or projects it is hard to switch your personal coding styles from project to project. In my experience you adopt the Zope 3 style guide also to other projects outside the Zope world. But let's be pragmatic at some point...
Now with Philipp's guide we have a document telling people how to do it the right way.I don't think that's what this is. This is a document describing how things /are/ done in the Zope 3 repository. That's helpful both as it stands and as a foundation for a document on how things should be going forward.
What's the difference? :-) -aj
