Read them, believe them, live them:


Really! They're short and they help a *lot*. We try to avoid putting
arbitrary rules and practices here [1], so stuff that does make the cut
should be taken very seriously.

I say this even though I'm on record as *opposing* one or two recent
proposals to extend these guidelines.


[1] We're a very pragmatic bunch here, who care far more about shipping
cool software that Just Works. Anyone who's more interested in advocacy of
their pet peeves and abstract theories can waste their time on other mailing
