comment Indentation in a multi-language file
@FlorianF So, the question is polling for opinions? In such case, it is highly subjective. I may like the first, you the second, Celos the third, and every answer is valid.

comment Indentation in a multi-language file
@SjoerdJobPostmus No, it is not. The coding standard should tell what identation to use.

comment Is it effective to review code in language I don't know?
@Vatine Do you think that is the worst things that you can find in a code review? On my previous job, I worked with one great and one mediocre developer. One would put comments of such type (mispeled variable, invalid formating in a line, etc) and the other would sometimes completely rip off my code, but the result would be clearly superb to the original solution. Guess who made which comments, and from whom I learned more. If you do not learn anything new from a code review, then it is a waste of your time.

@SimonForsberg That is not what I am saying. Even senior programmers can learn something in a good code review. But if the only comments are "you mispelled a variable here"-kind of comments, then they are wasting their time.

@DavorŽdralo I don't. But if the only remark is about naming, then it is a failed code review. Such code review are doing incompetent people, and are just waste of time.
