[webkit-dev] globals and guidelines

And by "a patch" I meant a patch to coding-style.html, not to change every static variable (yet :).

Hi Cary,

There currently isn't a convention.  It would be great if you filed a bug on <https://bugs.webkit.org/> to update the coding-style guidelines (and provided a patch if you have an opinion on the matter).

Global variables aren't discussed here:


In sources, I see:
gX.. WebCore/rendering/RenderLayer.h:138:    static const
ScrollAlignment gAlignCenterIfNeeded;
s_x.. WebCore/rendering/RenderObject.h:964:    static bool s_affectsParentBlock;
AxBx.. WebCore/dom/RangeException.h:41:        static const int
RangeExceptionOffset = 200;

Is there one convention for const, and one for non-const? Or none at all?
