Please keep your advices for the juniors.

That I change to a harsher tenor does not mean that I've lost control or that I do no respect the people and their work (hint: a real friend will even hit you, if necessary to help you).

At least this issue here gives a good example of "how to NOT process issues":

It was my turn to come up with rationales.

But Mr. Naruse, disrespectfully (and incorrectly) rejected the issue in the middle of an open discussion.

That's why I switched to a harsher tone.

But is it harsh to state facts?

* The C source quality is low, it's a fact
* people have problems with the tab-8/space-4, (see the sources)
  * ignoring this is blindness - it's a fact
* using automations to produce an inconsistency is insane, it's a fact.

The development happens on heterogeneous environments. Not all people use emacs or other "far-out-in-space" highly-configurable editors.

I use usually Kommodo IDE, but I go sometimes (e.g. during difficult refactoring) to very thin editors.

To make this issue productive again:

* please state the rationale for the use of tab-8/space-4 for a indent-4 project.
* please suggest a solution for simple tools, thus there's no need to use tab-8/space-4 manually.

Bug #5034: C Source Code formatting
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5034

Author: Lazaridis Ilias
Status: Rejected
Priority: Normal
Assignee: 
Category: Project
Target version: 
ruby -v: -


=begin
The C sources use tab-4, tab-8 and spaces intermixed.

The tab-8 do not display correctly in several tools (displayed as tab-4).

The suggestion is that the use of tab8 is disallowed (two tab-4 instead of one tab-8).
