comment Does having to scroll horizontally make code less readable?
@mouviciel, Its not that the left side of the code is more important, but that semantically the left side of the code has more significance in understanding what the line of code does than the right. As you scan code, you often read just the beginning of the line to understand what it does before moving onto the next.

How often do the reviewers find that changes weren't made? And how often do the reviewers rubber stamp the review without close inspection once the developer says 'Yep, I done all those changes you recommended'?

comment What are the licensing issues involved in the Oracle/Apache java dispute?
Thanks. So what next for Harmony? Or do Oracle's restrictions make it dead in the water?

comment What are the licensing issues involved in the Oracle/Apache java dispute?
Thanks. With regards to point 3, are you saying that Oracle can force others to use restrictive licenses which them themselves wouldn't use? I.e. force non-mobile only platform restrictions on others, but quite happily develop their own mobile platform without such restrictions?
