[cdt-dev] Reformatting of code


I would like to suggest a procedure when reformatting entire java files for CDT.

Personally, I use the git history very much, so reformatting has an impact on that.
Merging local changes can also become quite painful.
I recently spent over an hour merging a local change into a file that had been
fully reformatted. This does not feel like time well-spent.  And it's not enjoyable either.

I suggest that either:
1- we simply avoid reformatting
2- if justified, any file reformatting be done in its own commit
