Subject Re: Outstanding issues for 3.0.3
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 15:53:09 GMT
I would like to pitch into this effort and put my ReSharper license to use. I pulled down trunk,
and picked a yellow item at random, and started to dig in. I quickly generated more questions
than answers, realized I needed to stop munging code and consult the wiki and list archives.
After digging through both, I'm still not entirely certain about what the style guidelines
are for 3.x onward. 

I also noted this[1] discussion regarding some other guidelines, but it didn't see if it made
it beyond the proposal stage. 


Here are some of the things Re# is catching that I'm unsure of:

1) Usage of "this" prefix when not required.

this.blah = blah;  <- required this.
this.aBlah = blah; <- optional this, which Re# doesn't like.

I'm assuming consistency wins here, and 'this.' stays, but wanted to double check.

2) Using different conventions for fields and parameters\local vars.

blah vs. _blah

Combined with 1, Re# wants (and I'm personally accustomed to):

_blah = blah;

However, that seems to violate the adopted style.

3) Full qualification of type names.

Re # wants to remove redundant namespace qualifiers. Leave them or remove them?

4) Removing unreferenced classes.

Should I remove non-public unreferenced classes? The ones I've come across so far are private.

5) var vs. explicit

I know this has been brought up before, but not sure of the final disposition. FWIW, I prefer

There are some non-Re# issues I came across as well that look like artifacts of code generation:

6) Weird param names.

Param1 vs. directory

I assume it's okay to replace 'Param1' with something a descriptive name like 'directory'.

7) Field names that follow local variable naming conventions.

Lots of issues related to private vars with names like i, j, k, etc. It feels like the right
thing to do is to change the scope so that they go back to being local vars instead of fields.
However, this requires a much more significant refactoring, and I didn't want to assume it
was okay to do that.

If these questions have already been answered elsewhere and I missed the documentation/FAQ/developer
guide, then I apologize and would appreciate the links. Alternatively, if someone has a Re#
rule config that they are willing to post somewhere, I would be glad to use it.
