[VOTE] space before paren policy

Hi, everyone,

After some discussion on IRC, I decided to call for a vote regarding this
space-before-parens discussion. We clearly don't reach a concensus and
there doesn't seem to be any more arguments put forward. The interested
can read this thread here:
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-01/0820.shtml
(This is the relevant subthread where the proposal was raised.)

There are three alternatives to vote on; you can vote +1, -1, +0 or -0 for
each. Note that -1 is not a veto, but just a vote against that
alternative. The votes for each alternative will be summed up and the
alternative with the highest sum wins. Everyone may vote, but only full
committer votes are binding.

If there are objections to these voting rules, we'll have to cancel this
process and resolve our voting process formally first.

Voting closes Thursday 2006-02-02T00:00:00Z. I will post a summary after
that date.

The alternatives are:

space-before-paren:
Require that there is a space between a function (or macro, but not for
the macro definition, of course) name and the following parentheses for
code that is added and that is not part of files or modules where another
style is already in use.

no-space-before-paren:
Require that there is no space between a function (or macro, but not for
the macro definition, of course) name and the following parentheses for
code that is added and that is not already part of files or modules where
another style is already in use.

big-compromise:
No change to hacking.html (see "Coding style" for the current text). This
allows the author of new code to choose the style.

Note that this applies to core C code.

-1 -0 +0 +1 Alternative
[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] space-before-paren
[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] no-space-before-paren
[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] big-compromise

Please reply to this mail with your vote.

Happy voting,
//Peter
