Coding standards ratified changes and ongoing proposals

The TWG coding standards committee is announcing three coding standards changes for final discussion. These appear to have reached a point close enough to consensus for final completion. The process for proposing and ratifying changes is documented on the coding standards project page. A change to this process is being proposed to streamline the interaction between the coding standards body, Drupal Core, and the Coder project, please provide any feedback on that issue.

Announced for final discussion:

Official coding standards updates now ratified:

Formerly announced issues that need an issue summary update

These issues have a lot of support but need an update to formalize the proposal so that they can be ratified and applied.

- [Agree on a property naming pattern]( 
- [Coding standards for breaking function calls, function declarations, and language constructs across lines](
- [Add type hinting to function declaration coding standards](

These proposals will be re-evaluated during the next coding standards meeting currently scheduled for December 20th. At that point the discussion may be extended, or if clear consensus has been reached one or more policies may be dismissed or ratified and moved to the next step in the process.

About Drupal Sun

Drupal Sun is an Evolving Web project. It allows you to:

  • Do full-text search on all the articles in Drupal Planet (thanks to Apache Solr)
  • Facet based on tags, author, or feed
  • Flip through articles quickly (with j/k or arrow keys) to find what you're interested in
  • View the entire article text inline, or in the context of the site where it was created
