We have a documented style guide for Bugzilla code. Apparently it's in some Perl manual somewhere. The link to this should be documented in the hackers' guide, rather than including selected excerpts.
Dave, what is the link here?
I'm not Dave :), but... http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.6/pod/perlstyle.html
We are currently trying to wrap up Bugzilla 2.16. We are now close enough to release time that anything that wasn't already ranked at P1 isn't going to make the cut. Thus this is being retargetted at 2.18. If you strongly disagree with this retargetting, please comment, however, be aware that we only have about 2 weeks left to review and test anything at this point, and we intend to devote this time to the remaining bugs that were designated as release blockers.
The docs should always be up-to-date when we release. Forgot to exclude Documentation when I mass-retargetted.
Moving process information bug to the web site component and taking them.
This is in baby, let's have a party!
