Having broken working code through "obviously identical reformatting", I will never reformat code unless I am willing, capable, and permitted to take FULL OWNERSHIP
of that code. For me, there is either "minimally sufficient changes" or "complete ownership" - nothing else and definitely
no middle ground.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
