I'll check and try to correct this. 
The point here is that Eclipse has a built-in code-formatter, which is highly 
desirable to use in a consistent manner (i.e. everyone working on the 
codebase has the same settings).
However, I didn't know that it was "tampering" with comments.
Legally speaking though, legal text layout is never an issue (remember; 
"Always read the fine print", where they try to hide what they don't want you 
to see).

Have done so.

My proposal is that we do a combined vote at the Avalon PMC;
* Acceptance of this codebase
* Andreas as a committer
since it is fairly tightly coupled.
