RFE: add GNU source formatting configuration
Last modified: 2013-03-11 16:14:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Please ship the GNU source formatting style bits with Eclipse. I think it used
to be there. Here's a good source of what you need....
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I just upgraded to eclipse-platform-3.2.0-1jpp_3fc in rawhide and it's still not
there. Would you like me to submit a patch for our eclipse SRPM?
That'd be great. I believe it was removed at one point because it didn't apply
and we were in a rush but I'd love to see it there.
What we need to do here is create a patch to the SDK that will make a new
extension point for formatting configurations. This type of patch is more likely
to get accepted upstream and then we can just make a plugin that extends this
new extension point to add the GNU formatting configuration.
Changing to RFE.

It appears that an extension point for code formatters exists in at least 3.4
(which will be released in June). We should write a small plugin to do that:
Implementing classes should implement org.eclipse.jdt.core.ICodeFormatter.
This would be a good task for someone interested in getting started with Eclipse

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
CDT has a built-in GNU formatting configuration and JDT doesn't make much sense as it's Sun's convention being the standard.
As the CDT has a built-in one I'm closing the bug as fixed.
