I've been spending over the last decade of my life building games.

I have a deeply seeded love of Python and the open source community as a whole.

comment Python Coding standards vs. productivity
@MarkBooth: You can't please everyone. I agree that if it's simply imposed from above it's more difficult to get buy in from other members, but it's still not a "huge waste of time". In having the standards in place, the code should be much more consistent and therefore you would run into less diversity in code throughout a project, which increases readability. But yeah.. Throwing away tests due to standards would lead me to believe that there were bigger problems under the hood.

@Job: I'd definitely downvote your comment if I could.. Sure, there are points in the question that are indicative of poor leadership, but that doesn't make them "idiots". Introducing standards is always a good thing. I also hardly see how finding a tool that will check coding style automatically even comes close to being a solution when dealing with the overhead of refactoring legacy code.

comment Function declaration as var instead of function
@shabunc: The name doesn't matter. What matters is the value in the callstack. As an example, [NAMESPACE]_[fn name] is the convention used by Mozilla. The name itself doesn't matter as long as your convention is consistent throughout your project.
