Hey, what's up fellas?
In some days or few weeks, I'd like to cleanup the Remmina source code
repository, removing any unneeded branches and profit to enforce a
coding style policy.
Concerning the repository cleanup, let me know what I _can_ or _cannot_
remove, I won’t remove anything if I don’t get an answer back from you
all, so please do your home work so that I’ll be able to do a proper
Regarding the coding style policy, it’s not to bother you all or to
create a bullish environment, but just to harmonize the Remmina code,
that Today looks like a patchwork of different projects and styles.
We have an uncrustify  configuration file  that was tailored to
what we were thinking was good for Remmina, but I thought that we have
to do a step back and decide together the style we should follow.
Therefore I’ve replaced (Today) the custom uncrustify configuration file
with a basic one that follows the Linux Kernel Coding Style guide.
It’s a starting point and I think it’s a good one.
Some spare notes:
- uncrustify it’s a tool, you can use whatever you like.
- I endorse the use of a git pre-commit hook to indent automatically
your code, or use an IDE that can do it for you.
- Giovanni and I are among those passing more time writing code,
therefore if it won’t be easy to discuss or to take a decision, we will
have the last word (welcome to the Remmina Republic ).
- As soon as we will take a decision I’ll re-indent the whole code, this
can cause merge conflicts.
That’s all at the moment and I’m really eager to have your feedback.
