8 Where is a coding style problem related to quality of code in general and
9 assurance in particular? This is something that repoman might check for,
10 and issue a warning. It has nothing to do with end-user quality. It even
11 is no problem for developers trying to understand the ebuild. It is only
12 a coding style violation, not a QA violation. Coding style is to present
13 a uniform view to things, so things look proper. QA is about things being
14 proper, not looking proper.
