Description Chris Jerdonek 2009-11-15 18:32:56 PST
There doesn't seem to be a good category in Bugzilla for patches and tasks related to modifying the code to fit the WebKit Coding Style Guidelines.  This is especially true for tasks that span multiple areas of the code.

I'd like to propose that a Component be added to Bugzilla called "Coding Style" (for the Product WebKit).  The description can be something like "For code that does not match the WebKit Coding Style Guidelines," or perhaps more generally, "For tasks related to modifying WebKit code to match the WebKit Coding Style Guidelines."

It looks like the list of components isn't stored in source control and that this needs to be done by a Bugzilla admin:

We don't do this often - usually, we update style when we touch code.

We don’t need a component for this.  We encourage people to clean up style issues as they’re working on an area of the code.
