- Whitespace around operators
- Never use on-demand imports (i.e. com.acme.foo.*)
- Group imports
- No author name in source files .
See the checkstyle file for details.

Pull requests or patches should be free of extraneous “merge” commits. That is, you should rebase your branch on top of master instead of merging master into your branch.
