Anyone who submits a .editorconfig that allows us to drop .dir-locals.el
would get enthusiastic support from me. notmuch has been a very
emacs-focused project for years, but it doesn't need to be, and generic
editor configuration rules are preferable to editor-specific rules.
here's what i suspect such an editorconfig would look like given our
current codebase, but i haven't tested it or tried to apply the changes
to the notmuch codebase and see if it changes anything.
root = true
end_of_line = lf
insert_final_newline = true
trim_trailing_whitespace = true
charset = utf-8
tab_width = 8
indent_style = tab
indent_size = 4
That said, i don't know how to represent (fill-column . 70) in
editorconfig syntax (see e0d85656da7f4d6e7d0b66a7bece39724143bffe for
justification), or (c-file-style . "linux").
(fwiw, i would also be happy if we moved away from literal tabs and just
used spaces-only. But i am not interested in setting off a flamewar,
so if anyone prefers the mixed-tabs-and-spaces situation we are in
today, i will never mention this again)
