Resolution 001 - Minimal Coding Standards#
As the POI project has grown the "styles" used have become more varied, some see this as a bad thing, but in reality it can be a good thing. Each can learn from the different styles by working with different code. That being said there are some universal "good quality" guidelines that must be adopted on a project of any proportions.

Amendments (informal by extension and not by vote)#
As opposed to the formerly used POI License (which was based on the Apache Public License), now that POI is part of Apache, use the standard Apache Software License 2.0 header. As per standard Apache Software Foundation policy, the full (long) version of the header should be used.
Tip: No laughing or joking allowed in conversations regarding coding standards. Any mail on coding standards will be treated very seriously, and sent here with a RTFM.
The motion was passed unanimously with no negative or neutral votes.
Andy didn't feel like going through his mail and sucking out the comments.. If there is anything you feel should be added here do it yourself ;-).
