|Re: [eclipse-pmc] Should we accept any patches to attract more contributors?|
|I’m with Mickael here. Understanding the history is important, but not at the cost that code does not get improved to keep the history clean and short. Implementation patterns evolve and it is important to update patterns to a harmonic and modern style. It is also valuable to work on such changes for people who want to get into the development workflow and want to contribute changes with estimable risk. If we want to attract more developers to contribute, it should be acceptable to let them do code hygiene.|
I also second that reading current code is more important than historic code.
