Subject Re: Git Feature Branches
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2016 14:44:14 GMT
One follow-up note about using feature branches. We're all going to be doing more and more
merging with this workflow. As such, it's important that we try to minimize incidental merge
conflicts. The biggest offender is when IDEs have different rules for organizing imports.
It can wreak havoc on the merge process.

It would be great if all developers could check to ensure that:

- You have "Use *" unchecked so that all imports are explicitly stated. 
- The order of imports is:


If during a code review, you see that the IDE has changed the imports incorrectly, please
flag it as an issue before the patch can be committed.
