(picking this email pretty much at random to give a broadcast response
to everyone because I know you don't seriously expect me to read all
First of all let me make this perfectly clear: this was not a email
suggesting discussing a style to pick. So all those emails saying "but
i don't like rule x or y" are completely offtopic (except the "all
classes start with Q" one ;) ) - it's nice you have an opinion but in
that particular case you may as well point out your eating habits or
favorite colors. The proposal was (i thought) very clear: adopting the
same style that our underlaying library is using in the core libraries
of all KDE. That style was "Qt library style", it wasn't "Zack's style
with Charles' additions" so just get over it.
Like I mentioned it's either all or nothing. Which with a minimal set of
cognitive skills you should be able to figure out, means: either we'll
accept the style that is already well defined (Qt style) or freaking
never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever (a few more evers
maybe) agree on a common style. It's really very simple: some disagree
because they feel that someone should, everyone has different indention
taste, some, clearly coughing-syrop abusers, think their freedom is
endangered by having a more consistant indention style or something
else. Reaching unanimous in a group this large is never going to
happen, that's why we have TWG.
Now that everyone complained a bit, brought up some pretty funky
conspiracy theories and sent amount of emails that can be classified as
scary by even the most savvy readers it's time for The Working Group
ninjas to step in, have a vote and decide.
Jesus Saves! By using double coupons and shopping wisely.
