PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS MAIL -- SEE BELOW FOR PARTICIPATION INFORMATION
The OpenJDK project lacks a style guide document and the Java Code
Conventions  have been collecting dust since 1999. For these reasons
we've put together a draft proposal for a new set of style guidelines
We'd now like to solicit input from the broad Java community. Because
everyone has such strong opinions on code style, we've found that extended
_discussions_ on these topics risk never converging (and along the way,
consume a lot of time and resources.) To maximize the ability for *everyone*
to have their feedback considered, we're going to use a "batch discussion"
approach, instead of having a free-for-all discussion.
1. Collect your feedback into a *single* batch and submit it via the
SurveyMonkey survey link below.
2. This review round ends on 14 August.
3. After the initial review round ends, we will publish everyone's feedback.
Everyone will then have a chance to make a round of comments on
submissions from the first round.
